History of Stonehenge. Sequence of artworks showing the history of the Stonehenge site, on Salisbury Plain, England. Stonehenge 1 (far left, 3000 to 2900 BC) was a 110-metre-wide circular bank and ditch enclosure, with pits that may have contained wooden poles. Stonehenge 2 (2500 to 2400 BC) added wooden structures inside this enclosure. Stonehenge 3 (2300 BC) replaced these with a crescent of 80 standing stones. Stonehenge 4 (2200 to 2000 BC) used large sarsen stones to form a 30-metre-wide ring and central horseshoe shape. Stonehenge 5 (far right, 1800 to 1600 BC) added a ring of smaller bluestones. After this date, construction at the site ceased.
