Archaeologists have discovered a wooden version of the British prehistoric monument Stonehenge, nearby the original site. A circular ditch, less than one kilometer away from the iconic stone circle, is thought to have contained a ring of timer posts. It measures 25 meters in diameter, just five meters less than Stonehenge.
Researchers have been carrying out a four year study into the area surrounding Stonehenge. They used radar equipment to measure tiny variations in the soil structure. The latest images reveal that the wooden "henge", which means "circle", had two entrances. Inside was a burial mound, which was probably constructed at a later date. The team who made the discovery are confident further evidence will be uncovered as the project continues.
