Stonehenge was built in the period of 3000 BC to 2000 BC on the axis of the midsummer sunrise. Since Stonehenge was built by a culture that left no written records, its purpose and even the method in which it was built is still a mystery.

The bluestones in the inner circle of the Stonehenge, considered by many to have healing properties, was brought to Wiltshire from the Preseli mountains in Wales.

The Sun-stone was amongst the first monuments at the site of the Stonehenge. On the day of summer solstice standing within the inner circle of stones one can see the sun rise over the stone.
