Giantsʹ Dance (The)


Stonehenge, which Geoffrey of Monmouth says was removed from Killaraus, a mountain in Ireland, by the magical skill of Merlin.

“If you [Aurelius] are desirous to honour the burying-place of these men [who routed Hengist] with an everlasting monument, send for the Giantsʹ Dance, which is in Killaraus, a mountain in Ireland.”—Geoffrey of Monmouth: British History, book viii. chap. 10.
