Ganrif yn ôl, canfyddwyd fod cerrig gleision Stonehenge wedi dod o orllewin Cymru. Ers hynny, bu'r cerrig yn ganolbwynt i un o ymrysonau pennaf y cyfnod cynhanesiol, wrth i ddaearegwyr ac archaeolegwyr ddadlau sut a phryd y cawsant eu symud, ac at ba bwrpas.
The author Brian John is an earth scientist who has a special interest in the Ice Age. He has more than 90 books to his name, including the best-selling 8-volume Angel Mountain Saga. He lives in the source area of the bluestones, and has studied it in detail for many years.
In the discussions, myth-making has unfortunately been a greater priority than sound science. In a dramatic development, following a forensic examination of the evidence from many disciplines, and drawing on exciting new research, earth scientist Brian John now shows that the stones were not quarried or transported by our Neolithic ancestors. Instead, they were carried eastwards by the great Irish Sea Glacier almost half a million years ago, and used where they were found by the builders of Stonehenge. And when the stones ran out, the great building project ground to a halt.......... the great prehistoric icon always was a ruin.
