A companion to one of Europe's most eminent prehistoric monuments has been discovered just a mile away. Bluehenge
has the same rough configuration as its sister site, Stonehenge, but with 27 stones instead of 56. It is speculated that the stones of Bluehenge may have been moved to aid in the making of
Stonehenge. [more inside]
Ancient observatories from space
Satellite images of Angkor Wat, Chichen Itza, Chaco Canyon, Stonehenge, Teotihuacan, and others. The observers, observed. High res images available.
are denouncing plans for a tunnel under Stonehenge.

The King of Stonehenge
found in a 4,000-year-old grave near Stonehenge
may have been from Switzerland and involved in its construction. It is the richest Bronze Age burial
found in Britain "off the scale". ...it is fascinating to think that someone from abroad – probably modern day Switzerland – could well have played an important part in the construction of Britain’s most famous archaeological site.”
