Friday 17th September
No prizes for guessing where we went today....good ol' Stonehenge. One of history's greatest mysteries - how did they get these huge rocks here 5000 years ago, especially the ones from Wales?? How did they stand them up and lift the hanging stones to the top? And what does it all mean? It seems like everyone has had a crack at coming up with a theory. Originally people thought the stones were put there by giants! Others think Stonehenge came from outer space. A more popular theory is that the stones were dragged there, on wooden rollers perhaps?
I think it was designed by the same people who designed MEC! Either way, Stonehenge is an impressive sight as you drive over the hill. Debbie didn't want me to put this photo in. I reckon she looks like Liza Minnelli and I look like....ummm...I'll think of it in a minute
Below: The mounds behind Stonehenge are called barrows - ancient cemeteries.
Spent the afternoon in Winchester, a lovely old city with, of course, a magnificent cathedral.
