|Stonehenge is in the middle of nowhere, in a grassy Wiltshire
countryside about 90 miles from London. Sheep were
peacefully grazing around, stopping to chew their cud
occasionally, and stare at the monument.
|About 1.3 million visitors a year make the trek to Stonehenge.
Some seek healing, some astrological history, and
some bucket listers, like us!
|This lone rock is called “Heelstone” or “Sunstone” –
just a few steps away from Stonehenge.
If you stand inside Stonehenge circle at sunrise on
the Summer Solstice, the sun will rise directly above it.
|The red dotted line in the middle of the photo shows
where the solstice axis hits the monument. In ancient
times, it was most popular during the winter solstice.
|Theories abound as to how these huge rocks were
moved, including levers, rafts and ice flows.
|One of the theories is that they moved them across
land like this, with a team of men pushing and pulling,
moving a log to the front every few yards.
