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.

Three pieces of broken deer antlers that were excavated 80 years ago at Stonehenge may tell scientists the date when the outer circle of gigantic stones was created.

Building Stonehenge took thousands of years. The outer Sarsen circle, made of huge stones the size of buses, is believed to have been created centuries after the inner circle of smaller bluestones was built.

Antler picks were used to dig holes for the stones. Because the antlers were once living matter, they can be tested by carbon dating. The exact site where they were excavated was recorded, at the base of two of the giant stones.

The famous 4,000 year-old circle of stones in the midst of Crop Circle country that is known as Stonehenge may not be authentic, a new report says.

Researcher Brian Edwards has discovered photographs that show fallen stones being hauled into place using cranes and scaffolding in restorations over the past 100 years. He says he has proof that virtually every stone was re-erected, straightened or embedded in concrete between 1901 and 1964.
