Caption: Cerne Abbas Giant, aerial photograph. The Cerne Abbas Giant, a hillfigure carving in a chalk hillside; is thought to have been the site of fertility rituals, though it uncertain when it was cut and by whom. The first recorded reference to it is from 1694, though some believe it may date from the end of the 2nd century AD. Photographed near Cerne Abbas, Dorset, UK.
