In a new exhibition, the 205 pound meteorite is on display, along with its mysterious story.
The space rock was likely found by druids to build a burial chamber and later unearthed by archaeologists near Stonehenge.

At some point, the Druids likely picked up the meteorite when scouting for rocks to build burial chambers. "They were keen on building burial sites for [the dead] in much the same way the Egyptians built the pyramids," Pillinger said.

The Royal Society's London headquarters will house the exhibit through March 30.
