Experts led from the University of Brighton uncovered the the origin of the 'sarsen' stones thanks in part to a sample of the monument recently returned from the US. The core sample — which was drilled out of one of the stones during repair work on the Neolithic site in the 1950s — was compared to similar rocks across England.Chemical analysis indicated that the 20-tonne, 30-feet high megaliths were sourced locally — likely to ensure the biggest stones could be used to build the henge.
