A ceremonial monument has been discovered less than a kilometre away from Stonehenge.

Professor Gaffney says: “This finding is remarkable. It will completely change the way we think about the landscape around Stonehenge. “People have tended to think that as Stonehenge reached its peak it was the paramount monument, existing in splendid isolation. This discovery is completely new and extremely important in how we understand Stonehenge and its landscape.”

    The landscape around Stonehenge has been scanned using the latest tech for a few years now, its great to see some results and hopefully it will lead to a better understanding of the history, maybe more about the people who built Stonehenge.
