Stonehenge Map

 

Satellite view is showing Stonehenge map, a Neolithic monument located in the English county of Wiltshire, about 8 miles (13 km) north of Salisbury. It is one of the most famous prehistoric sites in the world and one of the oldest built around 2500 BC.
The sanctuary consist of circles of menhirs arranged in a pattern whose astronomical significance is still being explored. New archaeological evidence indicates that Stonehenge might has served as a center of healing, other theories propose that it was a burial ground or a place to worship ancestors.

Anyhow, the people who built Stonehenge must have been of the opinion that the stones and the place harbour great powers, otherwise they wouldn’t have carried the stones, the largest weighs as much as 50 tons, over 240 km (150 miles) to the place where they were erected.
