Stonehenge or stone circle is the country's most iconic monument. For centuries, historians and archaeologists have puzzled over the many mysteries of Stonehenge, the prehistoric monument that took Neolithic builders an estimated 1,500 years to erect.

It is comprised of roughly 100 massive upright stones placed in a circular layout. While many modern scholars now agree that Stonehenge was once a burial ground they have yet to determine what other purposes. It served and how a civilization without modern technology or even the wheel produced the mighty monument.

Some have suggested that they were immigrants from the European continent , but many scientists think they were native Britons descended from the original developers.

The seventeenth century curator who discovered them—may have once held a ring of timber posts, according to some scholars.
