A cartoon strip explaining how the ‘bluestones’ of Stonehenge were transported the 180 miles from Wales
The standard orthodox view is that the Stonehenge bluestones were dragged overland and carried by raft from the Preseli hills of South Wales all the way to Stonehenge in Wiltshire. This would have been a super-human task, given the terrain. It would also have been a supremely pointless task, and no amount of romanticisation of the people’s purposes can really make such a task justifiable.
An alternative theory to how the bluestones reached Stonehenge is that they were carried there by a glacier and deposited nearby. Rocks deposited in this way are known as glacial erratics.
