ContainerHenge is a faithful replica of Stonehenge, rebuilt using shipping containers. I'm actually quite surprised that it's not been created yet. Perhaps it has, and I couldn't find.

ContainerHenge requires a very large field in order to accommodate its scaled up proportions. If someone feels like providing a set of containers; a couple of cranes; a JCB; a large enough space, and a crew of workers to facilitate its general construction, please get in contact with me. Ha

       Is the idea that each stone of the original henge is represented by a container, or that each stone is represented by an assemblage of containers, Legoesquely?

       One 40ft container per stone.

       Will the containers be filled with a creepy and baffling selection of objects, ala "Rama"?

       I was thinking that they could be filled with toy sized versions of The Stonehenge site, as made out of shipping containers.

       Ooh, I like it. Very meta.

       Fill the containers with gallium or a eutectic alloy to see if, and how much more global warming occurs (grammar de- optimized to serve all viewpoints) Its a millennial thermometer!
