Prehistoric man ‘used crude sat nav’

Prehistoric man navigated his way across England using a complex network of hilltop monuments.

New research suggests that they were built on a connecting grid of isosceles triangles that ‘point’ to the next site.

Many are 100 miles or more away, but GPS co-ordinates show all are accurate to within 100 metres.

This provided a simple way for ancient Britons to navigate successfully from A to B without the need for maps.
