Prehistoric festival at Stonehenge. Ancient Britons celebrating a festival at Stonehenge. This prehistoric circle of standing stones is located in Wiltshire, UK. It dates from 3000 BC to 2000 BC, with different construction phases in that period. The many theories about its function include its use as an astronomical observatory or as a religious site. Artwork from 'The Costume of the Original Inhabitants of the British Islands' (1815) by British antiquaries Samuel Rush Meyrick (1783-1848) and Charles Hamilton Smith (1776-1859).
