Stonehenge is the most important prehistoric monument in Britain.
It consists of earth, timber, and stone structures. Stonehenge dates
from 3100-2300 B.C. The purpose of Stonehenge has many theories -
temple for sun worship (a druid temple) a burial ground, an
astronomical calendar ? Some of the stones were deliberately
transported there with considerable effort from a great distance away
- a truly remarkable achievement. The great stone circles and
horseshoe arrangements for which Stonehenge is famous are later
additions to the monument.
