Above: the central stone structure today. This is the most accurate plan of Stonehenge you will find on the web, it’s been copied many times now, without credits! The plan is a composite of every survey made to date, and checked against a measured survey made on site using CAD, but be aware that restoration in the 20th century has moved certain stones from their original positions.  Below: a computer reconstruction of Stonehenge at its zenith (around 2,000 BC) showing what survives today

Above a surface contour map of Stonehenge. The ground rises from c. 100m above sea level on the east (blue), to c.103m to the west (red). Below, the same data used to model a vertical exaggeration relief model showing features that are otherwise imperceptible; note the mounded area within the centre which appears to predate the stones (compare with above).
