Stonehenge – the world-renowned circle of bluestone columns in an isolated field in southwest England, has been shrouded in mystery for centuries.
It once again came into news as researchers have discovered a massive Neolithic stone monument about three kilometres away from the Stonehenge and the enormous ‘Superhenge’ with as many as 90 large standing stones.
The remains of the stone monument are buried under a thick, grassy bank and are thought to have been put into the position 4,500 years ago.
Scientists discovered a row of up to 90 standing stones, some of which may have originally measured up to 4.5 metres in height, hidden underground for centuries.
The finding includes 17 previously unknown ritual monuments, dating to the period when Stonehenge achieved its shape.
