We’ve posted many news stories over the years about trying to discover the identity of the builders of Stonehenge. Now archeologists have found a entire workers’ village of about 25 houses buried about 2 miles away from the prehistoric observatory. It may also have been a kind of hotel where festival-goers could stay, where there was once a wooden version of the Stonehenge circle.
The village has been carbon dated to about 2600 BC, which is the same time that Stonehenge was built. LiveScience.com quotes UK archeologist Parker Pearson as saying that the Great Pyramid in Egypt was built around the same time.
