I'm still standing

Ancient stone circles are dotted throughout the British Isles. They are thousands of years old. How they were built is unclear. What they were used for is unclear.

My theory is that they were landing sites for space travellers stopping off on earth like some kind of intergalactic motorway service station…… however, I may be in a minority of one supporting this theory!

I think these stones were set to celebrate some fertility gods. Great pics, I love them! Have you ever taken any pics of rune stones in the British Isles?

Amazing and full of mystery...
There are similar standing stones in Scandinavia...some historians think they denoted a gathering place where different clans would meet to iron out disputes, set laws and rules.
As it has never been disprooved, your theory is presumable!

Great set. Great composition in #1 and #3. I think the Druids got drunk and decided to create them to make everyone else think there was some hidden meaning, when really they just wanted something to lean on while finishing their ale.

Fill up please, I am just here for a short holiday and then I will be moving on to Sirius.

Believe it or not I was born near Dartmoor but parents emigrated when I was three years old.
