Much in former times has been written on their miraculous origin, and still superstition has not entirely died out, for a native told Prof. Lloyd Morgan that if he hit the stones with his hammer he would smell the brimstone.
Lloyd Morgan was professor of psychology at Bristol University. He 'spoke to the natives' on a field trip c1887.
