An ancient formation of stones on the Salisbury Plain. The graves and mounds that surround it may indicate it was part of a wider complex, or that it was a centrepiece to some ritualistic ground. Date of construction is deemed to be ca. 3100 BC. To date, no explanation as to its true use has been certified (see English Heritage article).
