Just down the road a few miles from Stonehenge are the stone circles at Avebury. Avebury is actually much larger than Stonehenge, with an outer circle that encompasses an entire later English village. Unfortunately, many of the original Avebury stones have been destroyed. Many of them were broken up to make, for example, the village church. Ironic that stones originally erected at Avebury to keep evil spirits out of a village were later seen as evil by the more modern inhabitants of the same ground.
