When The Doctor, Amy, and River first get to Stonehenge, shots of the Doctor alternate between him with a left hair part and using the sonic screwdriver in his right hand and then with a right hair part and using his left hand. That is, the shots are being mirrored.

Revealing mistakes 

When River Song is talking to the Romans and they have realized she is not actually Cleopatra, space ships fly over and everything shakes, so visibly that the characters all wobble around as though the ground is vibrating. An ornament hanging from the ceiling, however, fails to move even a fraction, revealing that it is, in fact, just the camera wobbling.

When Amy is left to hide behind the Pandorica alone, on her close-up the back wall of this perfect prison wobbles.

When the Pandorica opens and the Doctor says, "The final phase. It's opening." the shot is flipped. The Doctor's hair, which normally flops toward Matt Smith's right, goes toward his left.

Spoilers 

The goof item below may give away important plot points.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

The Romans did not use saddles with stirrups; they did appear in Europe until the Middle Ages, but, since these Romans are not actual Romans, but creations based on Amy Pond's memories, it's likely the saddles were a mistake made by the Nestene creators rather than any fact given about the time period they were in.
