Who knows the name of the people who actually built Stonehenge? Druids, right!
Think about it… millenniums ago, men only had nature and their strength to build such a huge place. They used trunks to bring stones from one place to another and create this mysterious place. Here they used to celebrate the beginning of the seasons and make sacred rites.
