In the south of England, amidst the hills of Wiltshire, surrounded by woodland and mature trees, stands the most significant prehistoric example of Megalithic culture, Stonehenge.
Looking almost as it must have been done more than 4,000 years ago, at the time of the New Stone Age and Bronze Age, man created a shrine for a deity dedicated to a religion based upon nature and sun worship. Like gates built by Titans, these gigantic stones take us back to the Dark Ages.
