More About This episode

England's Rollright Stones, located on the borders of Oxfordshire and Warwickshire, are among the oldest and most mystic monuments in Britain and have captured people's imaginations for thousands of years. For some, they mark the spot of an unseen natural energy source. For others, they are the home of fairies dancing on summer evenings. Hosts Clive Anderson and Mary-Ann Ochota visit this mystic site and Long Compton to meet residents and examine ancient artifacts in hopes of separating the facts from centuries of mystery and myth.
