First erected some 5000 years ago, Stonehenge has been calculated that it took 3 phases of constructions, thirty million hours of labour and the transportation of masses of colossal rocks across mountains and rivers to complete it. The reason behind the construction of Stonehenge continues to be a mystery.
Explore this prehistoric stone circle on Salisbury Plain, believed to have been built between 3000 and 2000 BC. Walk around the mystifying circular formation of tall, standing stones. Experts still debate whether these were intended as an observatory of the moon, a temple to the sun, or an elaborate cemetery.
Step inside the Neolithic Houses to discover the tools and objects of everyday Neolithic life, and even visit the world-class exhibition and visitor center, containing 250 ancient objects and come face to face with a 5,500 year-old man.
