Located near Salisbury in the beautiful Wiltshire, England countryside is the World Heritage Site of Stonehenge. The true meaning of this ancient, awe-inspiring creation has been lost in the mists of time. Was Stonehenge a temple for sun worship, a healing center, a burial site, or perhaps a huge calendar? How did our ancestors manage to carry the mighty stones from so far away and then, using only the most primitive of tools, build this amazing structure? Surrounded by mystery, Stonehenge never fails to impress.

Which of the following titles would best summarize the point of this passage?

“An Unforgettable Mystery”


While all of these titles could actually be used, remember about checking the first and last sentences in a paragraph for determining the main idea. The author is emphasizing how impressive this structure is so visitors will want to go there. If someone is not familiar with what Stonehenge is, or where it is located, the other choices do not help relay the message the author is intending.
