Archeologists who dug up the remains of a Bronze Age archer at Stonehenge last year have found the remains of four adults and two children nearby. They came from Switzerland and may have been involved in building Stonehenge, in the area where crop circles are the most frequent and the most complex.
The group of people is believed to have lived around 2300 BC, during the building of Stonehenge. Archeologist Andrew Fitzpatrick says, “This new find is really unusual. It is exceptionally rare to find the remains of so many people in one grave like this in southern England. The grave is fascinating because we are seeing the moment when Britain was moving from the Stone Age into the Bronze Age, around 2300 BC.”
