This is a nice summary and great graphics laying out our current understanding of Stonehedge.

It's about more than the standing stones, and the timeline is being pushed back further and further.

woodhenge was mesolithic, while nearby stonehenge was neolithic
I don't think they were built by the same people
it is not uncommon that newcomers build a sanctuary on a place where there was allready a sanctuary before
it is a means to say 'this is our land now'

Vinca and Cucuteni-Tripolye probably had ards draught by oxens
I wonder whether oxens were used for the construction of stonehenge
