History of Stonehenge

A prehistoric monument, Stonehenge location is at the Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire, England, two miles (3 km) west of Amesbury. It consists of an outer ring of sarsen standing stones, each about 4.0 feet high, 2.1 meters wide, and weighing 25 tons, which is more by attaching the upper horizontal stones. It places it among the most infamous archaeological sites and maybe its most remarkable Stonehenge mystery.

Stonehenge is perhaps the world’s most famous ancient monument. Stonehenge is known as the UNESCO World Heritage Site Stonehenge and is visited by more than 1,000,000 people each year. It remains a symbol of all the confusion and wonder of the ancient era of mankind. For more than a long time, people have gathered at a landmark to celebrate the spring. Although the convention was banned in 1985 because of heavy police disputes, the annual meeting continued in 2000 and is currently attracting more than 30,000 people. 

Advanced Druidic social orders have confirmed Stonehenge as their sanctuary, even though the Stonehenge ID with the first Druids is suspected. Such a great society, the Ancient Order of Druids, was founded in 1781. Especially more recently, the number of Druidic circles compared with other Neo-Pagans has doubled and decreased with the common strong belief. It was hidden in a few sections: the first landmark was a henge landmark, operating long backward, and an unusual stone circle was enlarged toward the end of the Neolithic period, about 2500 BC. In the early Bronze Age, various burial channels were created nearby. Today, near Avebury, Stonehenge forms the english heritage site, with a stunning combination of ancient tourist attractions.

The confusing part about Stonehenge UNESCO has produced countless stories and speculation. According to ancient myths, Stonehenge was created by Merlin, an Arthurian mythologist, who mysteriously removed large stones from Ireland when monsters had collected them. One legend says that the Danes invaded the rocks, and another theory states that they were the remains of a Roman shrine. The Cutting-Edge interpretation is less clear; some argue that Stonehenge is a foreign landmark, and, surprisingly, many believe that the goliath statue resembles a female organ.

Archaeological excavations at the site date back to the 1660s, when they were first studied by collector John Aubrey. Aubrey unfairly placed Stonehenge on many recent Celts, hoping it would focus more firmly on the Druid clergy.

Hundreds of years of handicrafts showing that the mark was more than a thousand years old began to form, beginning as long as a round clay bank and trench. The confusing example of wooden poles was replaced about 2600 B.C. with 80 dolerite stones from Wales and repaired less often than when large sarsen rocks were added a few hundred years after the fact. These large blocks of sandstone, each weighing 25 tons, were spaced exactly 19 miles (30 miles) apart to form a fixed five-trillion outer circle (uprights sets with a line at the top) forming a horseshoe inside. It has been estimated that it takes more than 20 million hours or more to develop Stonehenge.

An old puzzle to be solved, Stonehenge is a 5500-year-old stone monument in Salisbury, England. Southeastern Bath in England has rocks about 75 feet (13 feet) high and 2.1 feet (7 feet) wide. It is one of Europe’s most famous Neolithic landscapes and has held the creative minds of the world for centuries.

Stonehenge is truly one of the wonders of the world. What visitors see today are the last major remains of a series of monuments built between 3000BC and 1600BC. Each monument was round, corresponding to the sunrise in the summer. There has always been a heated debate over what Stonehenge did. But there is no denying the ingenuity of the builders of Stonehenge. With only the basic tools they had, they carved stones and made pillars and sculptures covering the area and pillars. Using horns and bones, they dug trenches and built canals and ditches that closed mysteries near a 5,000-year-old monument in the center of the World Heritage Site.
