The author notes the efforts of many specialists including anthropologists, astronomers, engineers and others, using their knowledge and modern "know-how" even to the extent of computerizing this information, to try to bring forth some evidence as to the probable origin and methods of constructing this wonder and perhaps some reasons for its purpose of erection in the now lush area of Salisbury Plain in southwest England.
