When did we first discover Stonehenge?



  1. 0 Votes

    Stonehenge was built probably around 3000 BC in the Neolithic period. We know next to nothing about the people who probably built it, the “Beaker People,” or why they did it. The first written record we have of it is by Roman writers, who mistakenly believed it to be a temple for Celtic druids. Over the centuries plenty of different accounts for how it was built were written down, probably the most famous being the 12-century historian Geoffrey of Monmouth’s claim that it was stolen from the giants of Ireland by the soothsayer Merlin.
