The Rollright Stones are a complex of three Neolithic and Bronze Age megalithic monuments near the village of Long Compton, on the borders of Oxfordshire and Warwickshire. Constructed from local oolitic limestone, the three monuments, now known as the King's Men and the Whispering Knights in Oxfordshire and the King Stone in Warwickshire, are distinct in their design and purpose. They were built at different periods in late prehistory. During the period when the three monuments were erected, there was a continuous tradition of ritual behaviour on sacred ground, from the 4th to the 2nd millennium BCE.

  • Rollright Stones – kompleks trzech megalitycznych stanowisk, położonych na granicy hrabstw Oxfordshire i Warwickshire w Wielkiej Brytanii. Zbudowane z lokalnych oolitów, każde z trzech stanowisk w innym czasie, między IV a II tysiącleciem p.n.e. Kamienny krąg, o średnicy 33 metrów, liczy obecnie 77 kamieni. Możliwe, że pierwotnie było ich 105, dotykających jeden drugiego. Obecnie na terenie Rollright Stones mają miejsce obrzędy grup współczesnych pogan, np. druidów.
