Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument in Wiltshire, England, 2 miles (3 km) west of Amesbury and 8 miles (13 km) north of Salisbury.
Stonehenge consists of a ring of standing stones, with each standing stone around 4.1 metres (13 ft) high,
2.1 metres (6 ft 11 in) wide and weighing around 25 tons.
The stones are set within earthworks in the middle of the most dense complex of Neolithic and Bronze Age monuments in England,
including several hundred burial mounds.
Archaeologists believe it was constructed from 3000 BC to 2000 BC.
The surrounding circular earth bank and ditch, which constitute the earliest phase of the monument,
have been dated to about 3100 BC. Radiocarbon dating suggests that the first bluestones were
raised between 2400 and 2200 BC, although they may have been at the site as early as 3000 BC.
