An archaeologist took one of the stones of Stonehenge home - the son brought him back

The ancient construction of Stonehenge, which consists ofmany stones, was built around the XXX century BC. Of course, for all the time of its existence, some of the stones were simply not preserved - they were destroyed, moved or stolen. It became known that one of the fragments disappeared in 1958 - one of the archaeologists took him to him, deciding to help with the elimination of the cracks. As a result, part of the ancient sights lay in his house for 60 years, and returned to their native place only in 2018. This became known recently.

An archaeologist who kept a meter stone in hisThe name was Robert Phillips. At first he kept it inside a plastic tube in his office, and then took it with him when he moved from England to the USA. Subsequently, the stone hung in his house in Florida for several decades until the son of an archaeologist decided to return part of the ancient monument back.

The return came in very handy -the state organ "Historical England" just celebrated its 90th anniversary. The curator of the commission on historical buildings and monuments in England, Heather Sebir, said that they are very grateful to the son of Robert Phillips for returning the historically important details. Researchers believe that this relatively small stone may reveal the origin of the so-called Sarsen boulders, which have enormous dimensions.

The son of the archaeologist shared his comment - hehopes very much that other pieces of the ancient structure will return to their native place someday. At the moment, there are still a couple of missing fragments, but there is a possibility that there are other stones in some parts of the world.
