Avebury

A mega-megalith at Avebury

Megalith: noun, singular, from Ancient Greek megas (great) and líthos, (stone).

Naturally occurring megaliths are found throughout the world. Alignments of megaliths are less common and clearly the work of human hands.

The best-known English examples are at Stonehenge and Avebury. The Avebury setting contains the most mega megaliths!!!

  3. That’s pretty. I wonder how they transported them.

  4. Film images just have a certain quality you can’t replicate, even though technically film will always have the highest possible resolution (you can’t get higher resolution than molecular – just limited by the lens focus).

  5. One that’s definitely on my wish list to go to, I hear it’s much more impressive than Stonehenge.
