Introducing the Rollright Stones
The Rollright Stones is a ancient site located on the Oxfordshire/Warwickshire border in England. The complex consists of three main elements, The Kings Men stone circle, the King Stone, and the Whispering Knights.
The name “Rollright” is believed to derive from “Hrolla-landriht”, the land of Hrolla.
