My Amazing Trip to Stonehenge

I recently returned to the United States after vacationing in England. During my visit to the UK, I had the opportunity to visit one of the most mysterious places on our planet – Stonehenge.

Located in beautiful Wiltshire, England, the magnificent ring of ancient stones, known as Stonehenge, leaves the average observer completely breathless as he or she approaches the archaeological wonder. I have to admit that there is definitely a strange energy present on the grounds and in the surrounding areas near the huge stones. Completely surrounded by fields of English farmland, the prehistoric rocks are easy to spot as one drives on the local roadways that pass relatively close to the massive structures.

Some scientists have gone on record stating that the boulders were erected at Wiltshire around 3000 BC. I’ve heard other sources claim that the monument was erected around 5000 BC. I don’t know how old Stonehenge is, but it is certainly amazing to stand near those huge bluestones.

Theories have been postulated that Stonehenge is an ancient calendar. It has also been suggested by authors, Mary Bennett and David Percy that the stones remain as an ancient template, left behind by extraterrestrials, depicting a detailed blueprint for a special motor that could allow for interstellar travel.

Stonehenge is maintained by English Heritage, an organization that promotes a more down to earth theory that the site was erected by many human beings using ropes and logs, from fallen trees, to pull the rocks into place for the purpose of creating an ancient burial ground. Considering the fact that these megalithic stones are buried deep inside the English landscape, it’s quite unlikely, in my opinion, the site was erected using the rudimentary methods suggested by English Heritage and painted on a huge mural near the official Stonehenge gift shop.

Interesting to note, the surrounding lands that lie in very close proximity to the prehistoric Stonehenge are where some of the most amazing crop circles have been formed and studied by scientists for many years. While the tour guide that assisted us on our journey made brief acknowledgement of the fact that these crop formations regularly occurred in Wiltshire, he seemed to want to avoid additional conversation about the subject matter. This was not surprising to me as the man was a certified tour guide who worked for English Heritage, the managers of officialdom concerning anything and everything that is Stonehenge.

For those readers interested in visiting Stonehenge, the site is located 2 miles west of Amesbury and about 8 miles north of Salisbury. There are numerous private bus tours that visit the giant stones on most days of the year.
