The remains of a major new prehistoric stone monument have been discovered less than 3 kilometres from Stonehenge. Using cutting edge, multi-sensor technologies the Stonehenge Hidden Landscapes Project has revealed evidence for a large stone monument hidden beneath the bank of the later Durrington Walls ‘super-henge’.
The Stonehenge Hidden Landscapes Project team, using non-invasive geophysical prospection and remote sensing technologies, has now discovered evidence for a row of up to 150 standing stones, some of which may have originally measured up to 4.5 metres in height.

The new discoveries at Durrington Walls will also be part of the upcoming exhibition at the MAMUZ Museum Mistelbach "Stonehenge Hidden Landscape" including original finds from the Salisbury, Wiltshire and Dorchester Museums.
