The Rollright Stones, a complex of three Neolithic and Bronze Age megalithic monuments in Oxfordshire. Now known as The King's Men, The King Stone and The Whispering Knights, each is distinct in design and purpose, and were built at different periods in late prehistory. The stretch of time during which the three monuments were erected here bears witness to a continuous tradition of ritual behavior on sacred ground, from the 4th to the 2nd millennium BCE.

Rollright Stones - Oxfordshire are made up of 77 megaliths which are known as the King's Men. They are known as the Whispering Knights. To the north east of the main circle is a solitary megalith called The King. The stones are said to have once been a king and his soldiers who were turned to stone by a witch called Mother Shipton.
