Archaeologists believe that Stonehenge was erected between 2400BC and 2200BC but the exact reasons for its construction are still up for debate. Some believe Stonehenge was built by druids or pagans and used to celebrate the summer and winter solstice. Others believe the site was a healing site used to try and heal those sick or injured. Some theories even suggest the stone were erected by supernatural forces. Book yourself a Stonehenge tour and decide for yourself.
