Digging Starts on Buried Stone Circle


Archaeologists have begun a major dig to unearth the hidden mysteries of a buried ancient stone circle site that is ten times bigger than Stonehenge. The enormous 4,000 year old Marden Henge, in Wiltshire, is Britain’s largest prehistoric structure stretching for 10.5 hectares.

English Heritage is carrying out a six-week dig hoping to reveal the secrets behind the giant henge which has baffled historians for centuries. Most of the Neolithic Marden Henge has been destroyed over the years due to farming and erosion but minor excavations estimate the site to between 2,000 and 2,400BC.
