We took a day trip to Stonehenge and to the Roman Bath. Stonehenge was really cool there are so many theories on how the stones got there and what they were used for. The big stones that are stood up weighed 40 tons and took 200 men to move them. The little ones that are on too weighed 5 tons and were strategically placed on top. There was a pointer rock that would show shadows on the rocks when the sun moved, my opinion is so that they could tell time like a sun dial. But there were 56 trenches dug and it is believed that the stones were used for the 56 times the sun sets in one month, (calendar? Possibly). This was massive! I could not imagine how long it took people to build this.
