Background History on Stonehenge:
There was an original henge at Stonehenge approximately 5,000 years ago but it was presumed it was a earth mound and a ditch in the middle of an open space.
Then around 4,200 BC the Beaker people arrived and began constructing a double line of Stones directly inside the henge. These bluestones were brought from hundreds of miles from Preseli in South Wales. The movement of these stones was an amazing feat ,as most of these stones are incredibly weighty and were brought to Salisbury Plain by boat and sledge , this work is believed to have taken decades.
These stones were barely long enough to be a permanent fixture, when they were destroyed and may have been moved to another site, possibly nearby.
A new circle was then built using the Sarsen Stones from the Marlborough Downs to create an inner horseshoe enclosed by a circle. This is today’s famous circle.
It is a symbol of the past and the ancient world.
