Stonehenge, one of the world's most famous megaliths, is located above a chalky plain about 8 km North of Salisbury, UK.  It has been drawing people towards it for around 5000 years, and to this day remains an enigmatic mystery because the questions of how it was constructed, who built and transported the heavy stones, why they built it (functions) remain unanswered, where the theories are only ranged and debated.

Towards the centre of the circled area, are pillared constructions consisting of two upright stones, and one stone placed horizontally on top of them.  These are known as trilithons.  At first glance, it would seem that the entire area is composed of rocks, but venturing outwards, it becomes clear that there is a ditch and bank that surrounds the entire area.  There is also a path that goes from the monument towards the River Avon a few kilometres away. These detailed constructions together constitute the enigmatic Stonehenge.

One of which; John Aubrey (England’s first archaeologist and an author) incorrectly implicated the Druid civilisation to the building of Stonehenge.  This was because the Druid society happened to worship at Stonehenge.  However, the inaccuracy in this was...
