Stonehenge is the most architecturally sophisticated prehistoric stone circle in the world. And also perhaps the world’s most famous prehistoric monument. It consists of a ring of standing stones, each around 13 feet high, 7 feet wide, and weighing around 25 tons.
Ancients Britons, ~4500 years ago, were said to hurl the megalithic bluestones, which comprise Stonehenge, 140 miles from SW Wales to Wiltshire. The larger sarsen stones are said to come from the west woods of the Marlborough Downs, 15 miles north of Stonehenge.
The recently discovered City, Blick Mead, may comprise of settlers who probably built Stonehenge.
The stones are said to help with the understanding of Neolithic and Bronze Age ceremonial and mortuary practices.
