Work began on this structure in 1982 and the stone — 160 tons of Georgia granite — was acquired in 1983. Each piece was crafted by high pressure water jet equipment from the University’s lab. Work on this partial-recreation of Stonehenge finished in 1984 and was dedicated on June 20 (summer solstice) of that year.
