Stonehenge’s little sister: Bluehenge

Published on October 5th, 2009 | by Admin


Archaeologists have discovered another stone circle, called ‘Bluehenge’, a mile away from Stonehenge.

The find is already challenging conventional wisdom about how Stonehenge was built – and what it was used for.

Bluehenge was put up 5,000 years ago – around the same time as work began on Stonehenge – and appears to have been a miniature version of it.

The two circles stood together for hundreds of years before Bluehenge was dismantled. Researchers believe its stones were used to enlarge Stonehenge during one of a number of redevelopments.
