Did Stonehenge unify Britain?

Experts from the Stonehenge Riverside Project have concluded that "Stonehenge was built as a monument to unify the peoples of Britain, after a long period of conflict and regional difference between eastern and western Britain."

The team also concluded that the location for the monument was chosen for its "solstice-aligned Avenue [which] sits upon a series of natural landforms that, by chance, form an axis between the directions of midsummer sunrise and midwinter sunset." The major undertaking of its construction helped to unite the peoples of Britain and bring a temporary rest to cultural differences.
