The phase of the moon is how much of the moon appears to us on Earth to be lit up by the sun.Half of the moon is always lit up by the sun, except during an eclipse, but we only see a portion that's lit up. Around once per month, every 29.53 days to be exact, the phases of the moon make a complete cycle.
When we can see 100% of the lit up side, this is a full moon.

The Stonehenge that is visible today is incomplete, many of its original bluestones having been broken up and taken away, probably during Britain’s Roman and medieval periods.
In 1973 English archaeologist Colin Renfrew hypothesized that Stonehenge was the centre of a confederation of Bronze Age chiefdoms.
Other archaeologists, however, have since come to view this part of Salisbury Plain as a point of intersection between adjacent prehistoric territories, serving as a seasonal gathering place during the 4th and 3rd millennia for groups living in the lowlands to the east and west.
