THE OLDER, BIGGER STONEHENGE
The Ring of Brodgar is the youngest of all of the Neolithic monuments on the Orkneys, but it’s still 500 years older than Stonehenge in Wiltshire. The menhirs in the Ring of Brodgar came from a quarry north of the Stone Age settlement at Skara Brae – 1.6km from the henge. However, the rocks that make up Stonehenge came from a quarry 225 kilometres away in Wales. How exactly they were transported such a large distance remains a mystery.
