Stonehenge was constructed in three phases, taking up to 30 million hours of labour to build. It is thought that the monument was erected for use as a place for human sacrifice, although some believe that it was used as a place of astronomy by the star gazers of their time.

 

 

Stonehenge The Heelstone

The largest stones, known as ‘Sarsens’ are up to 30 foot tall and weigh in at an incredible 25 tonnes. It is believed that theses stones were brought from Marlborough Downs, some 20 miles north of the site. The smaller stones known as ‘Bluestones’ were brought from the western hills of Wales, a distance of some 156 miles. Recent scientists believe that the stones were carried here by glaciers during the last ice age.
 
As early as 10,500 years ago, three large pine posts (totem poles) were erected at this site. The purpose of these structures remain unknown. As a burial site, Stonehenge is thought to contain the remains of  240 people, making it the largest Neolithic burial site in Britain.
