Bluestones at Stonehenge

DSCN0385 The recent discovery of an original bluestone circle near Stonehenge adds yet another twist to the already complex story about the origin, use and meaning of the bluestones.

The general consensus is that the bluestones were moved from a site in the Preseli Hills in Pembrokeshire. There is good evidence for this claim. Only Aubrey Burl has questioned it, raising the relevant issue of how they were able to move the stones. Others have gone further in exploring ways in which the stones may have functioned within a wider cosmological landscape.
