I went to the larger pic of this and could see 'more' but still don't understand what I'm looking at. The stones seem to be resting on a place that is higher - almost like a pedestal. At first the stones look very large but in the bigger pic I can see DK? sitting on one and they look very small.

Explanation?

4000 years ago the stones would have stood around 8-12 feet high and surrounded by an outer bank but the stones were toppled by early christians. The excavation of them has only uncovered the tops, what were once their sides.
