Stonehenge is one of the most famous landmarks in the United Kingdom and it's part of the most dense complex of Neolithic and Bronze Age monuments in England.

Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument consisting of a ring of massive standing stones and horizontal stone lintels capping the outer circle. Two different kind of stones (bluestones and sarsens) were used to build it, Archaeologists believe it was constructed from 3000 BC to 2000 BC.

Many modern scholars agree that Stonehenge was once a burial ground but they have yet to determine what other purposes it served and how they constructed this impressive monument without modern technology.

Stonehenge is the most architecturally sophisticated stone circle in the world, while Avebury is the largest.

Stonehenge is situated near the medieval city of Salisbury in Wiltshire.
