Scientists are still investigating how Stonehenge was built and what the monument means.  A new theory is that Stonehenge was built as a monument to unify the people of Britain.  Stonehenge may have been built in a place that already had special significance for prehistoric Britons. The SRP team have found that its solstice-aligned Avenue sits upon a series of natural landforms that, by chance, form an axis between the directions of midsummer sunrise and midwinter sunset.

An interesting article that links to related stories.
