Stonehenge

Stonehenge1In honor of the birth of the Prince of Cambridge, I thought I’d share some of my favorite photos of England.  Then I realized I don’t have all of my England photos on this computer, so we will have to wait till tomorrow for that one.  Until then, let’s take a look at Stonehenge.

If mysteries are your thing, then this might be your kind of place.  Questions surround the stones in the field.  How did they get here?  Why are they positioned this way?  What does it all mean? The answers vary depending on who you ask.  Personally I’d like to believe that it was built by astronomers and not for sacrificial purposes.

Stonehenge is probably the most famous of stone circles, but it is not the only.  There are actually hundreds of them in Britain alone.  Have you ever visited an ancient stone circle?  What were your thoughts on it?

    Lovely photos of Stonehenge Melissa, it always looks so BIG in photos and so small when you drive by on the A303! Being English I have visited a few of these places and Avebury, also in Wiltshire, is really nice. I must go to Mitchell’s Fold here in Shropshire while the good weather holds!

    I was lucky to stand in the middel of Stonehenge on an early morning. Really impressive. Avebury is beautiful as well. I agree on your thought of astronomers but there is more to stonecircles than that. People took a lot of effort to build them in larg quantities all over the area of Brittany and the sout west of UK. Some places are really inspirational.
