Field of sarsen stones

Sarsen stones litter the pasture in this area of Fyfield Down in Wiltshire. Avebury and many other megalithic monuments in southern England are built with sarsen stones.

 

Sarsen is a dense, hard rock created from sand bound by a silica cement, making it a kind of silicified sandstone.
