Around 2000BC a group of welsh people transported 98 blue stones, weighing
6 tons each, from the highest point of Carn Meini aprox 1000ft, in the Preseli hills Penbrokshire, to Salisbury Plain Wiltshire, a trip of more than 200 miles.

AFAIK these people did not have the wheel or any known method of moving
these stones, so how did they move over 500 tones of stone 200 miles ?
