Following a detailed laser scan of Stonehenge last year, an analysis has just been published by English Heritage.
It reveals many more axe carvings and much new information on how the stones were shaped.
(Stoneholes G and H are putative stone sockets lying between the excavated ones; their positions are extrapolated from the known stones).
It comprises a segmented ditch with opposed north-east/south-west entrances that are associated with internal pits that are up to one metre in diameter and could have held a free-standing, timber structure.
The project, which is supported by the landowner, the National Trust, and facilitated by English Heritage, has brought together the most sophisticated geophysics team ever to be engaged in a single archaeological project in Britain.
The project aims to map 14 square kilometres of the Stonehenge Landscape using the latest geophysical imaging techniques, to recreate visually the iconic prehistoric monument and its surroundings and transform how we understand this unique landscape and its monuments.“This finding is remarkable,” Professor Gaffney said.
“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.”The new “henge-like” Late Neolithic monument is believed to be contemporaneous to Stonehenge and appears to be on the same orientation as the World Heritage Site monument.
