Mysterious Stonehenge

Creator: LearnFree2007    Length: 3 min  31 sec

This short video has lots of interesting information about Stonehenge. For example, you may not realise that the Stonehenge we see today is just a small part of a larger area of archaeological importance - it's surrounded by hundreds of burial mounds, which are still visible today if you know where to look for them.

The video also discusses the latest thinking on why Stonehenge was built, and the evidence for that, including how the monument is aligned with the sun at the summer solstice.

Alternative theories are also introduced - the mystery is part of the magic of Stonehenge, and goes some way to explain the fascination many people still feel for it.

At the end, there's another interesting feature you can look out for in the area of Wiltshire around Stonehenge.
