Reconstruction of the Stone circles at Avebury, Wiltshire
Reconstruction (after J. Britton) of the Stone circles at Avebury, Wiltshire - The Great stone circle, it is said, was approached by two avenues of 200 stones each, which took a sinuous course south-east and south-west and represented a snake transmitted through a circle. Stukeley put its foundation at 1859 BC, the year of the death of Sarah, Abraham's wife (!!). The present village of Avebury has grown up amidst the stones of his ancient temple'.
