Stonehenge is probably the most important prehistoric monument in the
whole of Britain and has attracted visitors from earliest times.

- age estimated at 3100 BC
- type of stone: Bluestone, Sarsen, Welsh Sandstone

Stonehenge was constructed in three phases

It has been estimated that the three phases of the construction required more than thirty million hours of labour.

Speculation on the reason it was built range from human sacrifice to astronomy.

Stonehenge

 

The Heel Stone marks the original access to Stonehenge. It shows from the center the direction of the sunrise at the time of the summer sunrise.
Heelstone, Slaughter Stone and the center of the circle lie on one axis.
