Featured article: Discovering the second henge

home-storyUniversity of Birmingham's Professor Vince Gaffney
When an international team of archaeologists found a major ceremonial monument just 1km away from Stonehenge in the summer of 2010, 45 million people around the world were fascinated.

The new henge was uncovered just two weeks into a three-year international study that forms part of the multi-million Euro international Stonehenge Hidden Landscapes Project. Professor Gaffney “This finding is remarkable. It will completely change the way we think about the landscape around Stonehenge. “People have tended to think that as Stonehenge reached its peak it was the paramount monument, existing in splendid isolation. This discovery is completely new and extremely important in how we understand Stonehenge and its landscape.”
