''The famous stone circle is just one part of the enormous ceremonial landscape on Salisbury Plain, development of which started more than 5000 years ago. Stonehenge contains the densest concentration of round barrows, ancient tombs containing the remains of people, anywhere in Britain. Through the work of the National Trust, much of the landscape has been returned to chalk grassland, which protects the ancient monuments, and grazing by sheep and cattle helps ensure you can enjoy wildflower displays, insects, and birds in spring and summer''.
