Stonehenge is situated in a uniquely preserved Neolithic and Bronze Age landscape.
Excavations have now shown that Stonehenge as we now see it was built on the site of much earlier Mesolithic activity and the continuity of activity on this site demonstrates that the area had significance prior to the Neolithic and monument construction although the exact significance for the Mesolithic is unclear.
The site of Woodhenge is close by and the more permanant stone structure is a later development. The cursus and avenue were probably processional ways and link the site to other significant sites on the landscape. Stonehenge has significance for links with Avebury and Silbury Hill.
The Bluestones which are part of the monument are also significant and demonstrate links to other areas. They are now thought to almost certainly originate from South Wales in the Preselli Mountains. Their re-location to the site at Wiltshire would be a huge undertaking even now.
The site evolved throughout the Neolithic and Bronze Age and many satellite barrows surround the monument.
Eventually the site lost significance after over two thousand years of being a focal point. It is one of the most impressive pre-historic landscapes in the world.

Stonehenge situated near Amesbury in the county of Wiltshire, England, approximately 8 miles north of Salisbury. It can be described as a Bronze Age megalithic and Neolithic monument. It has a geographical location of 51.179 North, 1.8265 West.

Stonehenge is one of the most recognised prehistoric sites in the world. It is made up of earthworks which surround a circular set of large standing stones. Prominent archaeologists suggest that while the standing stones were probably raised between 2500 BC and 2000 BC the circular earth bank and ditch, surrounding it have been dated to roughly 3100 BC.

English Heritage owns and manages Stonehenge and the National Trust owns the surrounding downland. In 1986, the site and its surroundings were included in the UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites. There are lots of views, theories, interpretations, even myths and legends that encompass Stonehenge. The mystery surrounding Stonehenge has resulted in a number of excavations at the site.
