Facts on the Stonehenge  

         Stonehenge is a Bronze and Neolithic Age monument near Amesbury in England.

           It is one of the most prehistoric tourist attractions in the world. Stonehenge is believed to erect around 3200 B.C. The word, Stonehenge, derives from Old English word “stan” and “hinge”. Stan means “Stone”, and hinge means “upright”.

           Understanding the development of Stonehenge is a difficult task, because the early excavation records were badly kept. Archeologist believes that Stonehenge was built in three phases, and it required at least thirty million hours of labor for over 3,000 years.

Stonehenge was built in circular formation, and it is made of Bluestone, Welsh Sandstone, and Sarson stone.

            According to pagan and neo-pagan beliefs, Stonehenge was a place for pilgrimage. Ancient British Druidism, New Age Philosophy, and Neo Paganism often used Stonehenge to perform religion ritual. However, the use of Stonehenge for religious worshipping is carefully controlled after the Battle of Beanfield in 1985.

            Stonehenge is also one of popular tourist attracting in the world by the beginning of 19th century. The site is extraordinary beautiful in the midsummer sunrise.  If you are planning to visit Stonehenge, you should know that you are not allowed to walk amongst the stone, except special.
