Giants' Dance

   A circular stone monument on the Salisbury Plain of England. Built about 4,500 years ago, one of its uses was as an astronomical observatory, to mark the location of the rising and setting of the Sun and Moon. It probably also served as a temple for religious celebrations. New features were added to Stonehenge over hundreds of years of use. The builders remain unknown, but it is said that the magician Merlin brought the stones over from Ireland. Many graves of nobles and the rich can be found in the area surrounding Stonehenge. The Druids did not build Stonehenge, as it was created long before they ever existed.
   Also called Stonehenge. See Woodhenges.
