Stone cements its place in history

A STONE which stood for up to 6000 years in a Perthshire field before heavy rain in February felled it has been re-erected and set in concrete to stop it falling again.

The 7ft high Dane's Stone is believed to date back to between 4000BC and 1000BC, and was named in the Middle Ages at the time of the Vikings.
