|Description ||On the left is stone 9 of the south-west quadrant of the Great Circle, also known as the Barber Stone. The name comes from the human remains found underneath the stone when it was excavated - from the tools and coins found with the body it is assumed that he was a 14th-century barber-surgeon. Most of the stones at the Avebury site were toppled and buried or broken up in the middle ages and some were re-erected in the 20th century.|
