Stonehenge, Avebury and Prehistoric Britain

Stonehenge would probably be pretty high on any non-Brit tourist’s wish list. Some of us get a bit blase about our history in Britain, we’re forever tripping over castles, stately homes and prehistoric monoliths. I must have driven past Stonehenge 20 times in my life and never, ever, stopped. Not because I don’t think it’s …
