Stonehenge on Mint Stamp

Stonehenge is a stone monument believed to have been built around 2,500 B.C., near present-day Amesbury, England.  Stonehenge is made up of great standing stones arranged in a circular layout.

Stonehenge is famous for its “trilithons” – sets of two stones standing upright with a third stone laid across the top.  What makes them so amazing is that some of the stones weigh up to 50 tons each, and rise up 20 to 24 feet.  Archaeologists have long been puzzled at how people of the time raised such massive stones with the level of technology believed to have existed then.
   
The purpose of Stonehenge is unknown, although the northeast entrance lines up exactly with the midsummer sunrise and midsummer sunset of the era. 

One of the most famous sites in the world is also one of the most perplexing.  Was it a burial ground?  Sun worship temple?  And how did they move those huge rocks?  See if you can decide with this mint sheet.
