Neolithic tomb found at Stonehenge quarry

A Neolithic tomb has been found at a bluestone quarry thought to have supplied materials to build Stonehenge.

They are now excavating at the site of a robbed-out Neolithic tomb, built right next to the original quarry.

They knew that the tomb had been disturbed previously, so rather than excavate inside, they placed their small trench along its outer edge.

Prof Darvill said: “It’s a little piece of keyhole surgery into an important monument, but it has actually lived up to our expectations perfectly.”
