Stonehenge is a circular group of large stone blocks located in southern England. No one knows why Stonehenge was built between 5,000- 3,500 years ago, but many scholars believe it was a place of religious worship. Some of the stones weigh as much as 50 tons. Some of the stones had to be moved 240 miles, or 385 km, from the place where they were mined. No one knows how this was done. On the longest day of the year a person standing in the center of the stone circle can see the sun rise directly above the main stone. This has led archaeologists to guess that Stonehenge was built by people who worshiped the sun. In 1985 the Battle of the Beanfield was a clash between 600 new age travelers and 1,300 police officers. The travelers were stopped at a roadblock and the confrontation turned violent with 537 of the travelers arrested in one of the biggest mass arrests of civilians in all of English history. Stonehenge attracts more than 1 million visitors every year.
