Archaeologists say they have discovered
a monument similar to Stonehenge
near the ancient British stone circle, dubbing it the most exciting find at the site for 50 years.
The structure is said to be like a wooden version of the world-famous collection of giant stones
on Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire, south-west England.
“This is probably the first major ceremonial monument that has been found in the past 50 years or so
,” said Vince Gaffney, a professor from the University of Birmingham, who is leading the archaeological dig. “It will completely change the way we think about the landscape around Stonehenge.”
