The prehistoric Stonehenge has a diameter of over 300 feet. How the stones got to where they stand now, continues to be a puzzle until today. The exact purpose for which the megaliths were erected also remains a guesswork for many who studied them. But some things cannot be denied: Wiltshire was once a venue for one of man’s most ambitious engineering achievements. Why any traveler would miss this site in his lifetime is surely more mind-boggling than the story behind the Stonehenge is.
