The Senegambian stone circles lie in The Gambia north of Janjanbureh and in central Senegal.

With an approximate area of 30,000 km²,[1] they are sometimes divided into the Wassu (Gambian) and Sine-Saloum (Senegalese) circles, but this is purely a national division. According to UNESCO, the Senegambian stone circles are “the largest concentration of stone circles seen anywhere in the world.”[2][3] “These sites, Wassu, and Kerbatch in Gambia, and Wanar and Sine Ngayene in Senegal, represent an extraordinary concentration of more than 1,000 stone circles and related tumuli spread over a territory of 100 km wide and 350 km in length, along the River Gambia.[4] Wiki
