Stonehenge, one of the most famous standing stones in the world

A standing stone is a large man-made upright stone dating from the Bronze Age, which typically can be found solely as monoliths, or as part of a group of similar stones.

History

In the 1st century BCE, the Medjay Bayek of Siwa would often visit various stone circles throughout Egypt with his son Khemu.[1]

During the 6th century, the Irish Celtic monk Brendan of Clonfert encountered numerous standing stones in England and later Vinland, which had been engraved with mysterious symbols inscribed with an ancient script. He would make writings documenting findings, leaving them behind in each location. Three centuries later, the Viking Eivor Varinsdottir visited these locations, finding the monk's documentations.[2]
