Stonehendge: The Sequel

Archaeologists conducting a multi-million pound study believe timber posts were in the pits.

Project leader Professor Vince Gaffney, from the University of Birmingham, said the discovery was “exceptional”.

The new “henge” – which means a circular monument dating to Neolithic and Bronze Ages – is situated about 900m (2,950ft) from the giant stones on Salisbury Plain.

Archaeologists in England have discovered a companion site to the famed Stonehendge.  The presumption is the new site was a cemetery.  ” I am quite sure something else of at least equal interest will emerge before the three years are up,” writes Mike Pitts, debating the true importance of this discovery.
