About Stonehenge

Despite all the advances in technology and architecture in the UK, Stonehenge remains one of the most intriguing structures ever built. Situated in Wiltshire, its history and construction continue to be shrouded in mystery, making it a popular destination for locals and tourists alike. 

According to most, Stonehenge is believed to have been ancient burial ground with human bones dating back to as early as 3000 BC present on the site. Despite this, there are many theories out there which claim other motives for the presence of this landmark.

Stonehenge is managed by English Heritage while the land which it sits on is looked after by the National Trust.
