About this spot
This ancient stone circle (also known as Seventeen Brothers) and cairn was erected to surround a round burial barrow from the Bronze Age, or kistvaen (kist), as they are named on Dartmoor. On the Ordnance Survey Map the stone circle appears as Nine Stones, but it is more widely known as The Nine Maidens.
