Let’s visit Stonehenge. It is the ancient circle of stones which stands in Southwest England.
Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument, presumably built by Druids, members of an order of priests in ancient Britain.
Midsummer’s Day, June 24th, is the longest day of the year. On that day you can see a very old custom at Stonehenge, in Wiltshire, England.
It is one of Europe’s biggest stone circles. A lot of the stones are ten or twelve metres high.
The earliest part of Stonehenge is nearly 5,000 years old. But what was Stonehenge? A holy place? A market? A magic circle? Or it was a kind of calendar? Scientists believe that the Druids used it for a calendar.
The people who started Stonehenge were very primitive. They used no metal and their tools were made of stone, bone and wood.
It measures 30m in diameter and 4m high. They say it was used for pagan’s religions ceremonies.
