Stonehenge, near BathView All Sizes

|Series||Ancient Ruins of Stonehenge|
On our way to Bath we visited briefly with Stonehenge, who sat stoically while we gawked and snapped photos. The impression that the stones are standing guard is strong, as if these are the skeletal remains of a more guardable structure. Perhaps during a siege it was burned to the ground, and only the bones remain to lie in a meadow for thousands of years.
These huge, ancient rough-hewn stones are placed into a curiously intelligent pattern sitting out in a vast empty meadow. Beyond the monument's scientific foundations, the grave presence of these stones alone is enough to dominate man's curiosity.
