1. Stonehenge - Wiltshire, UK

A pre-historic monument of standing stones, Stonehenge was built by a culture that left no written records or hints about how or why this circle of monolithic pillars was put there. Despite this, it is still inherently linked to the iconography of Great Britain and theories point to it being a ritualistic place of worship or supernatural power.

Dating around sometime between 3000BC and 2000BC, perhaps what is most impressive is the discovery that the stones used in the construction of this English landmark originate from Wales in a pit 160 miles away from where they now stand. No one is quite sure how they were transported there as the technology to do so, seemingly, did not exist at this time.
