Archaeologists estimate Stonehenge was erected around 3100 B.C. It is made from Welsh sandstone, bluestone and sarsen and, although no one quite knows why it was built, it remains a truly awe-inspiring sight.
Excavations at the sight have revealed the charred remains of cremated humans. This leads scientists to believe that Stonehenge may have been built as a location for human sacrifice and religious events.
Today, Stonehenge stands as proud as it did when it was built and tourists can visit the monument for a fee. Advanced booking is required.Learn more about United Kingdom
