A MAJOR Stonehenge puzzle has finally been solved after scientists located the origin of the monument’s giant rocks.
Modern scanning tech has traced the hulking sandstone boulders that make up Stonehenge to a site in Wiltshire.
Archaeologists think most of the larger stones – known as “sarsens” – were quarried in West Woods, just 15 miles away from Stonehenge.
That’s in contrast to the smaller “bluestones”, which were taken from the Preseli Hills in Wales – around 180 miles away.
It’s been long suspected that the large sarsen stones were taken from the Marlborough Downs, west of London.
