The Stonehenge- The Stonehenge- stone circle are in England. People transported the first stones to this place about 5000 years ago. We don`t know a lot about Stonehenge. Who built it? How did they built it? It`s a mystery.
Who built Stonehenge? People built Stonehenge with bluestones and sarsen stones. There were about 80 bluestones. They came from mountains 250 kilometers away. They are very heavy-some weigh about 4 metric tons. The sarsen are even bigger and heavier. About 4000 years ago, people transported them from 30 kilometers away.
How did people use Stonehenge ? Maybe they used it as a cemetery or a place for studying the sun and the stars. Maybe it was also a temple. It`s still special place for some people today. Every year, on June 21 st, lots of people go to Stonehenge to celebrate the longest day of the year.
