Stonehenge has fascinated me for as long as I can remember because it is surrounded by mystery and intrigue. Perhaps it is my background in archeology and anthropology which has fueled the fire of my interest. It is still unknown why Stonehenge was created and what purposes it has served. Stonehenge could have been a temple for sun worship or a healing place. It certainly could have served as a burial site, as there are burial mounds nearby, or perhaps a huge calendar. The unique stone circle with its mammoth sarsens and smaller bluestones was erected in the late Neolithic period around 2500 BC. Archeologists do not know how our ancestors managed to carry the colossal stones from so far away and then, using only the most simple of tools, built this amazing structure. Visiting this one of kind ancient place has been a dream of mine, which I would like to fulfill this summer during my study abroad experience. This legendary prehistoric monument is located in Wiltshire, England, about 2 miles (3 km) west of Amesbury and 8 miles (13 km) north of Salisbury. The bus ride to the location is just under two hours and costs around $75 American dollars and admission tickets to see the great stone circle are around $25 dollars. This also includes access to a Neolithic village, visitor center, shop, ancient landscape exhibit, and an on-site café. So if you are interested, please feel free to join!
