When I was a kid (in England) I was never quite clear what the mystery was about the stones. While his methods are very cool, there is very little evidence this is the way it was done (no examples of this method anywhere, or in documented history). But there are methods that are similar that have been depicted where a small group can move a large set of stones. There are many images of Egyptians move stones on boats. And it is easy to set up canals in England.

If you look at the topology of the area, the odds are that the stones were moved using a sand a straw trick, and that they placed them by sliding them up a gradual ramp, then into holes, then later the dirt was all removed. The brits have shown a propensity for getting in a line and doing things. Even if painted blue and running around naked…
