It has been known for quite some time that the huge stones used to build Stonehenge five thousand years ago originated in the Preseli Hills in Wales, which is a long way from where they are today. Now, a new study claims to have found the actual quarries from which the stones were cut.
I think that is interesting. But I was even more intrigued by a possibility expressed by some of the researchers that I had never heard of before: that the original henge was actually built in Wales near the quarries. Some time later, many generations later, perhaps, when the people migrated to southwest England, they took their important monument with them. The researchers are now searching the Welsh hills for the remains of a dismantled bluestone circle that would help confirm their theory.
