Renting a car in the middle of London is a challenge for us yanks who are used to driving on the right side of the road. Instead of traffic lights it seems we were constantly challenged with traffic circles that were unlabeled. OK, there were some traffic lights but those roundabouts scared me. It took us almost 2 hours to drive south to Stonehenge. I had never seen this wonder of the world and was a bit curious.
It is oddly located out in the middle of fields near the town of Amesbury. Archaeologists believe it was built between 3000 BC and 2000 BC. Much research has been done including Radiocarbon dating which indicate Stonehenge was a burial ground and that the 2 ton blue stones, which may have been believed to have special qualities, were likely moved from Wales by lifting them and carrying them with rows of poles. A tourist center is near the car park where some videos and artifacts are displayed, along with a gift shop and dining area.
