The Rollright Stones are a complex of megalithic oolitic limestone monuments lying across the border between the counties of Oxfordshire and Warwickshire.

The complex consists of three separate sites: The King's Men, The King Stone and The Whispering Knights (the county border follows the road which separates The King's Men from The King Stone). According to local folklore the stones are the petrified remains of a king and his knights, however, each set of stones has been found to date from a different period. The name is thought to derive from “Hrolla-landriht” meaning the land of Hrolla.

The stretch of time during which three sequences of monuments were erected here bears witness to a continuous tradition of worship on sacred ground, from the fourth to the second millennium BC. A sacred tradition was Christianised: famous archaeologist Arthur Evans reported that one of his informants, a local landowner, met one of his labourers on Good Friday: "where do you think I be going?" the man asked, continuing, "Why I be agoing to the King-stones, for there I shall be on holy ground."
