Preseli Blue Stone

Preseli Bluestone is a mysterious stone. Famously, Stonehenge in England is made up of 43, 4,000-8,000 pound blocks of Preseli Bluestone. Stonehenge is estimated to be over 5,000 years old (dating back to 3100 B.C) and is thought to have once contained over 80 Preseli Bluestone “standing stones”. How the million year old presell stones got to this prehistoric site is quite a mystery. Stonehenge is located in Wiltshire, which is about 150 miles away from the Preseli Hills, the only known locality of this infamous stone. Historians are divided on just about every aspect of this stone, its cultural site, and how it got to where it is.
