Inscription

{On the wooden plaque:}
This sarsen stone was erected to mark the 75th anniversary of the UCL Institute of Archaeology in 2012.

Unveiling page tells that the sarsen stone was donated by a farmer in the Avebury area of Wiltshire. We cannot explain the "MEC" - perhaps it's a company involved in the transportation/erection of the stone.
