Stonehenge Stone Circle

Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument located in the county of Wiltshire in England,
about 8 miles ( 13km ) north of Salisbury.
Stonehenge is one of the most famous prehistoric sites in the world
and is composed of earthworks surrounding a circular setting of large standing stones.
Archaeologists believe the standing stones were erected around 2200 BC
and the surrounding circular earth bank and ditch,
which constitute the earliest phase of the monument, have been dated to about 3100 BC.
Stonehenge is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
