Ring of Brodgar, Orkney: 11 reviews and 19 photos
As many other sites of this kind, the purpose of this magnificent human handwork still remains unclear. Some sort of a ceremonial site? A lunar observatory?
It is important to understand because it has been calculated that more that ten thousand man-days of work have been necessary to erect the site plus several thousand other man-days to carry there the stones.
Why would a society with so few resources decided to pursue such a gigantic task?
