When I visited England after graduating from college, I went to Stonehenge. It was a very cool place — evocative, ancient, mystical, and unknown, even with the assistance of modern science. Like Easter Island, the Sphinx, and other monumental parts of the world of long ago, Stonehenge has carefully kept its secrets.
Now scientists are looking more closely at Stonehenge, and are making new discoveries. The most recent discovery is of another “henge” located near Stonehenge itself, and research teams expect that additional finds will be made as the area around Stonehenge is fully explored and excavated.
Still, the essential mystery of the place remains. I hope that will always be the case.
