Stonehenge, a British Icon
Stonehenge has attracted the attention of British inhabitants and the world for centuries. Stonehenge is probably the best known stone monument outside the pyramids of Egypt. People have often wondered who build Stonehenge and have come up with many myths, legends, romantic poetry, and stories. British literature has romanticized Stonehenge in its awe and wonder, and poems based on Stonehenge are well known. British culture has used Stonehenge in a type of worship as well, holding solstice festivals and Druid ceremonies. You could probably ask any native Brit about Stonehenge, and they could tell you all about it.
