The BBC has recently released a short animation depicting the evolution of Stonehenge through the ages. If you are like me and are deeply fascinated by prehistoric monuments, you’ll definitely want to check this out.

Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument located in the English county of Wiltshire, about 2 miles (3.2 km) west of Amesbury and 8 miles (13 km) north of Salisbury. One of the most famous prehistoric sites in the world, Stonehenge is composed of earthworks surrounding a circular setting of large standing stones. Source.

  1. …and if you do visit Stonehenge, you should really go and look at Salisbury Cathedral (about 10 miles from Stonehenge) too – not see it from the train station but go and get up close and personal.

    Bill Bryson says "There is no doubt in my mind that Salisbury Cathedral is the single most beautiful structure in England and that Close around it, the most beautiful space." I may be biased – I live in Salisbury – but I think he's right.
