"Stonehenge (Stonehenge) is a popular tourist area in England, and is located in Emsbury, Wiltershire, England about 120km away from London. Stonehenge is said to be the most famous prehistoric architectural site in Britain, and its origins and methods are still a mystery in archaeology. The Stonehenge, also known as the Round Stone Forest, is a large circle of dozens of stones, some of which are six meters high, and have stood on the plain for thousands of years. According to the guide, there are legends that several important positions in Stonehenge seem to be used to indicate where the moon is angry on the summer solstice day. And from the opposite direction it is exactly where the sun is falling in the winter solstice. In addition to the sun, the moon's landing point seems to be recorded. But the moon does not start from year to year like the sun, it has a 19-year lunar calendar. At the entrance of Stonehenge, there are more than 40 columns, lined up in six rows, which correspond to the northest position of the moon in the period, so the six columns are likely to represent the six cycles, i.e., the six solar calendars, and observe and record the moon's movement for more than 100 years. Stonehenge in a large open space, need to charge a very expensive ticket, if you don't want to pay tickets and look far away, no, it is far away, not even a little can not see, so everyone will dispel this "free" idea. There is a lounge area, food and drink, I went in July in the summer, the hottest month in the UK, and I didn't want to buy a frozen coffee, only hot coffee in the lounge area."
