Cut out of the rock face and transported from Pembrokeshire in Wales, which is over 160 miles from its current location on Salisbury Plain. What an incredible feat of willpower and engineering, as each rock weighs around 40 tons and all this was carried out back in 3,100 BC!
This location has long been the subject of debate, with theories behind its existence ranging from it being a religious temple, to a burial ground from The Bronze Age. Come to your own opinion as you walk around this incredible, ancient monument.
