The remains of a super new prehistoric stone monument, discovered 3 kilometers from Stonehenge, using cutting edge ground-penetrating radar.
The Stonehenge Hidden Landscapes Project has revealed evidence for a large stone monument hidden beneath the bank of the later Durrington Walls ‘super-henge.’
Durrington Walls measures 1,640 feet (500 meters) in diameter and a circumference of 4,920 feet (1,500 meters).
The team discovered evidence for a row of up to 90 standing stones, some of which may have originally measured up to 4.5 meters in height.
Professor Vincent Gaffney, explains:
“This discovery of a major new stone monument, which has been preserved to a remarkable extent, has significant implications for our understanding of Stonehenge and its landscape setting. Not only does this new evidence demonstrate a completely unexpected phase of monumental architecture at one of the greatest ceremonial sites in prehistoric Europe, the new stone row could well be contemporary with the famous Stonehenge sarsen circle or even earlier.”
