A visit to the burial ground may not be very high on
The most prominent question to cross every mind as it come across the stones is. “How and why did this get built?” Through centuries many archeologists and scientists have presumed and propagated Stonehenge theories as to what those stone structures represent. Some have called them the ‘work of the Druids’ while others believed them to be monuments for pagan rituals or biblical patriarchs. There are some experts who believe that the Stonehenge stones were placed for astronomical reasons and a minor population who believe they were incarnations of modern sport arenas.
However, detailed surveys of the areas surrounding the Stonehenge grounds have modern scientists proclaiming it as a burial ground. What scientist say must be true since they are working tirelessly and sincerely to solve this Stonehenge mystery. But, no theory can lessen the mystique and magic of an ancient site that links us to our past! Stones weighing up to 50 tonnes were rolled into standing positions in a horseshoe and circle shape. If this is not amazing, what is! Believe it or not, radiocarbon dating suggests that this heritage structure was built from 3100 BC till the year 1600 BC.
Whatever the theory you want to believe, you must visit the prehistoric site for its architectural wonder. While debunking Stonehenge facts or choosing your favourite theories, ensure that you view the structure with the rising and the setting rays of the sun. The structure aligns itself to the 21st December solstice. It leads one to wonder, maybe, just maybe, theories calling Stonehenge a ritual ground or an astronomical monument are true.
