74. England Stories Series: Stonehenge

If you ever want to travel to England, and you have no idea where to start your tour, Stonehenge is a must. It was founded around 3,000 BC, but there is no agreement as to how this place was once used. Some people think that it could have been a sun worship site, others – the healing center. Yet there are those who believe that Stonehenge was simply a market place, a place where people gathered on a regular basis just to do their shopping. One way or the other, what remains a mystery is not only the function of this landmark in the ancient times, but also the process of building it. The stones are perfect shape, and they are mounted one on top of the other very meticulously. How our ancestors could have done it using just simple tools remains unknown. Yet, Stonehenge never fails to impress us.
