Julian's Stonehenge favourite
Elizabeth Allen, aged 9, asked:
What's your favourite part of Stonehenge?
Julian Richards replied:
My favourite part of Stonehenge is the outer circle of huge sarsens as it is such an amazing structure. Not only have those massive stones been moved over 20 miles from North Wiltshire, but they are shaped, they have huge gently curved lintels (the ones that sit on top) and they have even been carefully placed so that the top of the circle is level. And all this 4,500 years ago with any metal tools or wheels. Even if this circle was all that was there, then I am sure that Stonehenge would still be world famous and visited by millions of people.
