 Stonehenge, a huge prehistoric monument, was built 5000 years ago in England.

Over the years there have been many thoughts about Stonehenge.
Was Stonehenge a temple,a healing ground or a graveyard?
People were buried there, and the stones are aligned in astronomically important ways.

Yes, for many years its builders and its purpose has remained a mystery until now.
Unobserved by many historians time after time was the image of the Cat God for which Stonehenge was constructed.
Once it's pointed out, any one can easily discern the image of the cat carved into one of the aging stone slabs.

The Stonehenge monument is located in Wiltshire, England.

Some of the stones used in the first circle are believed to have been brought from Wales, the Prescelly Mountains, located about 240 miles away.
It's possible that during the last ice age, glaciers carried these bluestones closer to the area, but they would still have to travel 140 mikes.
The bluestones weigh up to 4 tons each and about 80 stones were used, in all.
