A 4,000-year-old grave found near Stonehenge is one of the richest early Bronze Age sites ever discovered in Europe. “It’s a fantastically important discovery both for the number of artifacts found in that grave and the range of artifacts. It’s absolutely unique,” says Gillian Varndell, a curator of the British Museum’s prehistory department.
About 100 objects, including a pair of rare gold earrings, were found three miles east of Stonehenge with the bones of a man who died at about the time the monolithic stone circle was taking the form we see today. The most intricate crop circles appear every spring in the vicinity of Stonehenge in England.
