The Kings Men

The King’s Men is a fine stone circle broadly dating to 2670 bc to 1975 bc. The circle, on a hilltop setting, is nearly perfectly round, with a diameter of 33 m. In 1882 the circle was restored and new stones replaced missing ones. Of the seventy-three stones present today at least one-third were repositioned. Rollright has been seen as some kind of prehistoric astronomical observatory. However, there are very few meaningful alignments represented, a view of the midsummer sunset being the only one that stands out as potentially significant.

The Whispering Knights is part of The Rollright Stones complex.
