Why Stonehenge is Sacred?
Evidence that was found suggests that Stonehenge was a burial ground. Cremated remains found there show that they were of humans from as early as 3000 B.C. People continued to bury others there for another 500 years. The Druids consider Stonehenge a place important to their religion and they have pilgrimages there. The Druids believe in the harmony and worship of nature and respect for all beings and the environment.
