4,000-year-old burials uncovered at possible Henge site in England

Five burials dating back 4,000 years have been uncovered at a possible Henge site in the West Midlands of England.

Archaeologists have found the 4,000 year-old remains at a new housing development in Newbold-on-Stour, on fields at Mansell Farm. Experts say it is an ‘important discovery’.

The findings include a Neolithic henge, which – unlike its famous counterpart Stonehenge – was a simple design consisting of a ditch dug into segments and a bank made up of material thrown up from the ditch.

The buried remains of five people were also found, and archaeologists say they have ‘unusually for the area’ survived as complete skeletons.
