Stonehenge

13 Aug
In class today, we talked about the ancient monument of Stonehenge, located in England.  Groups discussed what they thought was the purpose of Stonehenge, how it was built, and what it might have meant to the people who built it (see pages 2-3 in your textbook).  Watch these two videos to learn more about Stonehenge.  Also, here is an article from Discovery News to learn more about Stonehenge:

    When was Stonehenge was discovered? Did a group of English men suddenly arrive in a clearing and find it?

      Great question! It was never really hidden like Machu Picchu or other ancient ruins that were surrounded or hidden in forests.
