Stonehenge

Stonehenge dates back to 3000 BC. The latest upgrade was a mere 3500 years ago. Much is known about how it was built but the why is more of a mystery. Apart from being an obvious landing site for UFOs, druid festivals, summer solstices, BBQs and pajama parties no one really knows. Archaeological evidence found by the Stonehenge Riverside Project in 2008 suggests that Stonehenge served as a burial ground. Cremated remains found on the site indicate burials from as early as 3000 BC. An opposite theory is that it is more to do with fertility with phallic shadows stretching across the ground towards the centre of the stones. An older theory was that it was used as a place of healing. So have a look around and see what you think. Maybe you can unlock the secrets of Stonehenge.
