Stonehenge is a historical stone structure whose name is a combination of the English words `` stone and hang '' meaning `` Hanging Stone. '' Although it is thought to be a prehistoric religious monument in Wiltshire, England, it has yet to be built for exactly what purpose it was built. each weighs 25 tons, 4 m. height and 2 m. This ring-shaped structure was built between 3000 BC and 2000 BC.
Stonehenge, one of the oldest and most well-known historical monuments in the UK, is known as the tourism and cultural symbol of England. Stonehenge, which belongs to the royal family, was added to the World Heritage List by UNESCO in 1986.
Two types of stones, called sarsen and bluestone, were used in Stonehenge. Sarsen stones are a type of silkret rock commonly found in southern England. The stones are about 32 km. It is thought that they were brought from Marlborough Downs.
Bluestone (bluestone), these stones, which turn blue at first sight, acquire a bluish color when broken or soaked. Blue stones are known to have been brought from Preseli Hills in Wales.
How these stones weighing 2 to 5 tons were transported over a distance of 250 kilometers is still a question mark.
