Stonehenge

Stonehenge, one of the Seven Wonders of Medieval World, is a vision to behold. For one to appreciate its beauty, you must know a little knowledge of its history - which dated back as far 2000BC- before you come and see the place for yourself. It is not merely a pile of boulder place on top of the other. It is a powerful reminder of once great people of Stone and Bronze Age, a ground where a civilization, a culture has thrive. It is the birthplace of worship and ingenuity and a place of one of the world's most enduring architectural engineering was achieved.

Why was the Stonehenge built? A question still remained unanswered to this date. It was speculated a burial ground, a place to worship the moon and the sun, a sanctuary of a kind. Whatever the purpose of building such a magnificent architecture must be very vital to the survival of that culture.

  1. Seven wonders of the world... I heard the Stonehedge used to be a colliseum kind of thing. It collapse and so became like that... I wonder if it is true or if that person Iheard it from was randomly spreading fake information :P.

  3. ladyviral.....

    speculation has it that it was build as a place of worship. there are also some theory that says human sacrifice was offered for ceremonial practices.

    time is its worst ally, having been built thousands of years ago, as it has missed some stones and some have fallen off!

    Are we progressing, or in the other way?
