Stonhenge is a prehistoric monument located in Wiltshire, south-east of England close to Amesbury and Salisbury, being one of the world’s most famous tourist attractions in uk. Research shows that the site has continuously evolved over a period of about 10,000 years.
The mystery of Stonehenge has the structure that we call was built between roughly 5,000 and 4,000 years ago and that forms just one part of a larger, and highly complex. No place has generated so much speculation and wild theories as the standing stones of Stonehenge. A walk around it only provokes more strange feelings. There’s a sense that this is something very important. It taunts us with it’s mystery. For over 5000 years it has stood silent vigil over the earth. It has been excavated, x-rayed, measured, and surveyed.
Yet despite all that has been learned about its age and construction, its purpose still remains one of the great mysteries of the world.
Many researchers have argued, who more convincingly than others, that Stonehenge was a site of religious rites of its time. There are several good reasons behind this assumption, but unfortunately it only takes one aspect of the theory that cannot be proven to collapse the whole train of thought. Remains of pig bones found on the site emphasize the theory of religious site, because no pig skulls were found among the bones. This means that the animals had to have brought to the site ready to cook (=beheaded), which would most likely have been done for the sake of the gods or the clergymen (or both).
