On this day in 2011 geologists from the University of Leicester and the National Museum of Wales announced the discovery of the exact source of the rock used to create Stonehenge’s first stone circle.

Blimey!

What you MUST know NOW: it’s from an outcrop called Craig Rhos-y-Felin.  It’s located near Pont Saeson in north Pembrokeshire, if you’re keeping track, or making travel plans.  Read all about it right here.
