Pentre Ifan

5,500 years ago, they lifted one stone up onto three others, so that we today would know that they could.

This lesser-known older brother of Stonehenge is located near the Western tip of the Welsh peninsula.

The capstone is 16 feet long and weighs 16 tons.

 

How was Pentre Ifan built, and why?   We can only guess.
