According to the interpretive narrative, the stones were probably quarried in Wales and transported to the site.More pictures of Stonehenge by Ruth Gregory...

Unbelievable isn't it? I don't know how they did it, but then neither does anyone! This is a super picture Ruth.
I read once that the only explanation for transporting the stones were with tree trunks. The stones were put on top, and the whole thing was rolled, then the back trunk was moved to the front and so on. Even so it must have taken weeks/months. Who knows whether this actually happened or just the writer's imagination of how it was done!
Thanks for the info, Jo. It's absolutely fascinating history.
One of my favourite interests, Ruth! This place is both mysterious and mystical. A wonderful pic!
