Recent Excavations at Stonehenge1


THE arrangement of the stones at Stonehenge includes on the outside a circle of sarsen stones, which were originally thirty in number and were capped with lintels, forming a continuous ring round the top. Inside this circle is another of smaller stones, originally forty-three in number, but without lintels and of a different rock from those of the outer circle.
