I run Boyne Valley Tours and noticed how often sheep are in photos of megalithic sites : Newgrange, Tara, Loughcrew, Avebury and more.

Sheep at Avebury Stone Circle, Wiltshire, England

Photo by Márcio Cabral de Moura

Avebury is the site of an ancient monument consisting of a large henge, several stone circles, stone avenues and barrows, surrounding the village of Avebury in the English county of Wiltshire. It is one of the finest and largest Neolithic monuments in Europe, about 5,000 years old. Although older than the megalithic stages of Stonehenge 32 kilometres (20 miles) to the south, the two monuments are broadly contemporary overall. More from Wikipedia ...
