England’s most sacred soil, the stonehenge was disturbed Monday for the first time in more than four decades as archaeologists worked to solve the enduring riddle: When and why was the prehistoric monument built?

Scientists estimate that the bluestones were first put in place about 2600 B.C. The original bluestones were removed about 200 years later and scientists hope to find bits of them embedded in the earth.
