Stonehenge in 8th century poem?

The 8th century, Old English poem called The Ruin may be the oldest surviving literature to mention Stonehenge, says medieval liguist Dr Graeme Davis. The poem refers to stones called "the old ones" or the "elders."

The Ruin was believed to have been written about the Roman city of Bath, but Davis thinks otherwise. "Reading it through, it's describing a ruin and Stonehenge. There are so many references to curved beams, and a ditch around it, so it doesn't appear to be Bath," he said.
