Stonehenge – Britain’s most popular prehistoric monument

The Stonehenge was built during an ancient civilization with roughly rectangular stones. Wiltshire, England is the home to the magical circular stones, and however there is no written record left documenting the construction, there are a couple of theories that attempt to explain the phenomenon.

The theories are based on the few clues that archaeologists and historians found during their investigation. Aside from the mystery surrounding Stonehenge’s constructions, people also speculate on how the stones were transported to the construction site.

The unique construction was done by foreign stones dabbing the bluestones because their insides are spotted with dolerite and are blue when broken. These unique stones are said to be foreign as they are native to Salisbury plain. The source of these stones is believed to be Preseli hills which are located in Southwest Whales.

Archaeologists came with different theories that tried to explain how the stones were transported to Salisbury Plain. Some of these theories include:

  • Human effort
  • The stones floated across water bodies
  • Dragged across dry land
  • Natural deposition due to glacial action

The theory that makes the most sense was human transportation since it is unlikely for the area to experience glacial action and the stone’s density does not support the assumption that they floated through water bodies. Another mystery that remains unsolved is why the ancient ancestors chose to transport stones for construction rather than use what was readily available.

Construction Stages

The Stonehenge was built in three main stages with the first one being the earthquake structure, which was a circular ditch surrounded by a bank. This was about 5,000 years ago, and the structure is known as the early henge monument. The second stage was in the late Neolithic period where a unique stone circle was constructed. The last stage was in the Early Bronze period and in this stage, burial mounds were constructed for the elite a stone throw distance from the stone circle.

Today Stonehenge and Avebury are the heart of a world heritage site. The unique construction and the mystery surrounding this heritage site are its main attractive features. The theories for why the Stonehenge was constructed the way it was included:

  • It was built as a burial ground for the elite, and there are bone fragments found on-site to support this theory
  • Built as a pillar of healing as there are healing properties found on site
  • Built to be a soundscape due to the voice cancellation effect of the stone circle
  • It was built as a celestial observatory since, in the winter solstice, the suns rays are the axes of the stone circle
  • As a result of a team-building experience as the Neolithic people were known to have a united spirit.
