New Stonehenge Find Makes Historic Site Even More Impressive

Ground-penetrating radar has unearthed 90 previously unknown 15-feet long monolith stones a mile away from Stonehenge. The new site seems as impressive as its famous neighbour, which is considered one of the wonders of the ancient world.

We are Ignorant of Them, They Knew their World

This find emphasises that the prehistoric builders were great scientists, architects and craftspeople.

Any perception of them being unthinking cavemen barbarians is down to modern ignorance. Those who respect and research the stone-age people know they do not know the full story yet, as evidence is still being revealed, as in this new find.

With our growing knowledge, we understand their great knowledge more.

Great greenYgrey Photos

The new find also provides some great greenYgrey images on the Metro site, both in a reconstruction of how they might have looked back in the day, and a map of the area:
