Stonehenge is one of the most mythical monuments in the UK. No one really knows exactly what Stonehenge was built for or indeed how our ancestors managed to build it with such primitive tools. It’s also interesting to take in the surrounding landscape. See the mounds on the horizon? These are not just mounds of natural earth, they are indeed burial mounds and it is said that their size and proximity to Stonehenge gives an
insight into the importance of those buried beneath.

Stonehenge and Avebury are among the most famous groups of megaliths in the world. The two sanctuaries consist of circles of menhirs arranged in a pattern whose astronomical significance is still being explored. These holy places and the nearby Neolithic sites are an incomparable testimony to prehistoric times. They have been inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List.
