Secrets of the Stonehenge

Updated on July 27, 2011

Stonehenge


Time has taken its toll. Time has burried many secrets and that was the easy part. The hard part is to uncover what was lost or possibly hidden. The Stonehenge is one of the most mysterious set of ruins. Who built this ancient megalith? How and why did they build it? When was it built and when was it finnished? What was it used for? Scientists claim the Stonehenge's construction started around 3000 B.C. Scientist also claim that the Stonehenge was built in three stages by three different cultures. The builders of the first stage, Stonhenge I, were the Windmill Hill people, belonging to a Neolithic culture. Stage two started towards the ending of the Neolithic era being built by the Beaker people. The third stage, Stonehenge III, was built by the Wessex people in the early Bronze age. Scientist claim that the construction of the Stonehenge was completed around 1600 B.C. Well, if they know who built it, do they know how they built it? Join me next time on the verge of discovery.

      The answer is in the hub Connecting the Dots. I think I did have a picture on this one but it disappeared.

      Interesting, but this Hub could be expanded to explain why Stonehenge was built. In which Hub do you explain that Stonehenge was built so farmers could track the planting and harvesting times. I see a lot of questions about Stonehenge, but not a lot of answers to those questions. Additing a picture or two of Stonehenge would also enhance this Hub.

      Yes how it was built is a much easier question than 'why' see:
