Stonehenge: New Discoveries (SYDNEY) – Stonehenge is one of the world’s best known but most enigmatic monuments. Many theories have been proposed about its purpose; to do with lost civilizations, ancient druids, prehistoric astronomers, ancient Egyptians and even extra-terrestrials. Since 2003 archaeologists have carried out a major investigation, the Stonehenge Riverside Project, to find out more about this mysterious stone circle. Among their discoveries is, a large settlement near Stonehenge, thought to be the builders’ camp, a new stone circle ‘Blue Stonehenge’, and the remains of people buried at Stonehenge. Recent scientific developments are now revealing new insights into the lives of the people themselves, many of whom travelled long distances from across Britain. Some of the megalithic stones were also brought long distances, from over a hundred miles away in Wales, and the study of where they came from is also shedding new light on the purpose of this remarkable structure.
