Yes, this was on yesterday's UK news. Still impressive that they hauled these huge stones 15 or so miles.

Strange how I read about this in 1970, is 50 years since, the "ancient" they were talking about ?

I always thought that since the stones came from Wales that whales moved them. Appears I was wrong. I blame an old documentary for my poor knowledge.

Blue stones from Wales, sarsens more local, IIRC.
