scotland ~Ring of Brodgar-Unesco Site~

Sent by Sarah.This perfectly circular henge monument originally comprised 60 megaliths, of wich 27 remain standing today. 125 'Megalithic yards' (103.7m) in diameter, and surrounded by a 10m wide by 3m deep rockcut ditch, the Ring dates from the third millenium BC, and is now part of the "Heart of Neolithic Orkney" World Heritage Site.
