In brief: Stonehenge

The stones used to build Stonehenge were rolled rather than dragged into position, according to the November issue (vol. 138 no 4) of the ICE Civil Engineering journal. Dick Parry, former civil engineering professor at Cambridge University, believes that rolling techniques would have replaced dragging, the shortcomings of which have been highlighted recently by the Millennium Stone project.
