Stonehenge

Stonehenge is the oldest neolithic site in England, situated on Salisbury Plain in the heart of ancient Wessex.  It was a place of pilgrimage and a burial ground, constructed between about 3000BC and 2000BC.  Consisting of a ring of standing stones – a stone circle – with a surrounding earth bank and ditch, some of its stones are thought to have been brought from far afield in North Wales.  There are numerous burial mounds in the vicinity; it was a place of burial from its earliest beginnings.
