rollright stone circle. ‘the kings men’ on the the borders of oxfordshire and warwickshire near chipping norton. it has been dated to the kate neolithic. it has been calculated that given that the oolotic limestone monoliths are heavily weathered surface stones and probably sledged to the site from position lower in the valley, it would have taken twenty people some four weeks to construct the circle but would have required careful planning and some geometrical knowledge. it’s a near perfect circle 31.4 metres across and seems based on π times 10 meters. this diameter is reflected in a number of stone circle in the marlborough area. #ancientarts #ancient #neolithic #rollright #rollrightstones #ancientwisdom #archaeology #ancientgeometry #stonecircles #megaliths
