Personally, I think that it's really quite unbelievable that 3000+ years after Stonehenge was erected its purpose and its means of construction still remains something of a mystery.

To be sure - Stonehenge is an ancient monument that stands tall as one of the world's most awesome and curious treasures.

Built using precision measuring techniques, this structure continues to baffle modern-day archaeologists and historians, alike.

With some of the massive stones used to construct Stonehenge weighing up to 26 tons (and standing 18 feet tall and 7 feet wide), this huge megalithic structure will probably always remain the mystery that it is now, and will continue that way for time-eternal.

documentary - a new idea proves to be worth while in discovering even more about the dwelling or engineering feet.

We were looking for the latest archaeological understanding of why Stonehenge was built and what it was used for. The DVD had some of that, in the form of fairly recent theories and findings, but the "history" was spoiled by speculative parallel "fantasy" sequences that tried to show what the builders looked like, what they did, and even how they talked. We couldn't watch to the finish and even our 10-year old rated it as boring.
