Fun Fact: The dramatic prehistoric site of Stonehenge in Wiltshire County, England, was completed about 1500 BC. The first stage began around 3100 BC and was abandoned for nearly 1,000 years. Its original creators and purpose are unclear. The final stage consists of a circular setting of large standing stones brought from 25 miles north. The largest of the Sarsen stones transported to Stonehenge weighs fifty tons. It is unknown how the stones were transported.
