|Description ||The University of Missouri-Rolla Stonehenge (UMR Stonehenge)
Erected in 1984 by Professor David Summers, this scaled down version of Stonehenge has 29.5 sarsen stones (1.5ft high) surrounded by 5 trilithons (13.5ft), a heel stone & 4 compass markers.
The stones were carved using a water-jet system developed by Prof. Summers, who said he believed the squared up, boxy aspect of the stones represents the way they had looked when they were first formed, and that what is seen now is the product of centuries of erosion.
