Seriously though, who knows what they mean? We know when people put them there (between 6000 and 4000 years ago) and it is assumed that they have 'spiritual' significance to the people who made them, presumably associated with fertility, the sun and moon, and the 'mother goddess'. But what the stones actually mean is guesswork...

Apart from the ones that look like knobs, it's pretty obvious what they mean...

no probs. If you want a more detailed explanation without the knob gags, try the wikipedia articles on Stone cirles and European Megalithic Culture
