When the next new month began, a strong wind blew up the English channel and carried Dally all the way back to Somerset. He peered down and suddenly saw Britain's most ancient monument, Stonehenge! Although he knew other structures had preceded it, and that they had been built about 5,000 years ago, the existing stone circle was erected in the late Neolithic period about 2500 BC. Dally tried to imagine how it once would have looked. Long before anything was ever built, the south of England had largely been covered by woodland, and as Dally looked about him and at the chalky landscape of the surrounding area, he wondered if that was why Stonehenge had become chosen as a special and sacred site.
