Stonehenge – How was it used? How was it built?

Posted 5/1/2020


The stone circle in England was begun 5,000 years ago in the Neolithic Age.  The final changes were estimated to be made in 1,500 BC in the Bronze Age after building and rebuilding by generations of ancient peoples.

There are multiple theories about its construction and purposes – see the links below for more information about it serving as a calendar (based on the sun’s position around the stones at different times of year), or possibly as a place of ritual and/or burial.
