Publisher's Summary

Learn the history of Stonehenge with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series. Five thousand years ago, at the same time as the pyramids were being constructed in Egypt, another monolithic structure was being built in the English county now known as Wiltshire. This structure, a complex series of earthworks and towering standing stones, is one of Europe's most famous prehistoric sites. But while we know quite a lot about who built the pyramids, and how and why they were constructed, we know very little about Stonehenge. Was it an astronomical observatory? A place of magic and ritual? A burial ground? A place of healing? The debate still rages.

Part of the reason why Stonehenge remains such a mystery, is that it was constructed by people who had no form of written language, so there are no records, other than the stones themselves.

So who were these mysterious stonemasons?

Some interesting facts.

Some information was very informative, others were just nonsense about old legends etc.
it was alright seeing that it was free.
