Stonehenge - Facts, Fiction, Mystery, Story -What?



kmjoshiKmjoshi on 11/17/2008

StonehengeFactsFictionMysteryStoryWhat Photo Stonehenge is considered to be one of the most ancient monuments in the world, dating back thousands of years.Some even claim that it's construction began in 8000 B.C. Although carbon dating estimates the Stonehenge rock at around 3000 B.C to 1600 B.C, but some charcoal remains found at the site date back to even 7000 B.C. This is one mystery which still remains to be solved. No one knows who and why it was built. Although there are several theories such as sacrificial altar, an astronomical tool, gallows, alien construction, portal to another dimension, entry to the nether world, passage to Hades (of Greek Mythology), entry to the centre of the Earth (courtsey Jules Verne's novel - Journey to the centre of the Earth), built by Titans, built by Giants, and in some case even by an advance civilization called Atlanteans from the mythical island of Atlantis.

The questions in this quiz are framed based on facts, fiction, and fun, but whatever the case maybe, they certainly will add some more knowledge and insight to the mystery called Stonehenge.

Before you get going with the quiz, please checkout some details on Stonehenge @ google.com. All the best.

I watched a movie on modern day people trying to recreate stonehenge. It was really quite interesting. However, that was a year ago and I guess I didn't pay enough attention, lol! Great quiz!

I should have taken your advice and checked out the info on Google, but alas, overconfidence strikes again. Great quiz,
