Men-an-tol standing stones. This formation of standing stones is thought to be the remains of a Neolithic burial chamber, with the circular shaped stone forming the entrance. The stones were later the site of traditional rituals which involved passing children through the hole in the belief that it would cure them of tuberculosis and rickets. Photographed near Madron in Penwith, Cornwall, UK.
