Stones
There are many ancient sites around Great Britain. The most famous being Stonehenge lying near to Salisbury in Wiltshire. Little is known for certain about Stonehenge but many authoraties believe that the stones form a giant calendar. The construction of teh site certainly represents a substantial undertaking - with some of the stones having been transported from Wales. Wiltshire is rich in other related sites. For instance, not far from Stonehenge lies Avebury a stone circle on a much larger scale. Although many stones are missing, the stone originally encircled the village. Built around 2800-2700BC the motivation behind erecting the stones is unclear and there has been much speculation.

Stones related televion series
In the 1970s ITV made a suitably far-fetched story set in the village called 'Children of the Stones' starring Garerth Thomas (who went on to play the lead character in BBC TV's Blake's 7). Other henge related TV series include 'Sky' and 'Shadow of the Stone'. Wiltshire also has various hillside carvings including various white horses.
