Archeologist investigating Stonehenge have made a startling find after new technology introduced to the site found a second Stonehenge like structure near the site of the original millennium’s old structure.
The second Stonehenge has been hailed as the greatest find in the area in over 50 years as the circular wooden structure was mapped out using new state of the art technology.
The team made up of British, Austrian, German, Norwegian and Swedish Archeologists were assigned with the task of mapping the area of the Stonehenge when the find was made.
One Archeologist was heard saying to a TV reporter “Who knows what else will be found, we mapped a portion of the area and we already found this significant structure.”
The second Stonehenge though made up of wooden circular planks is also noted to be in alignment with the famous structure itself.
University of Birmingham Professor, Vince Gaffney who is also the project leader told the BBC the moment they found the new structure through the new state of the art technology that helps map the area beneath the ground.
Gaffrey said we seemed “to have a large-ditched feature“ but then realized that there was a difference.
“When we looked a bit more closely, we then realised there was a ring of pits about a metre wide going all the way around the edge.
“When you see that as an archaeologist, you just looked at it and thought, ‘that’s a henge monument’ – it’s a timber equivalent to Stonehenge.”
Stonehenge has been surrounded in mystery for centuries as Archeologists have no clear understanding of its origins and what led the structure to be built in the first place.
Though the structure is now widely considered to be a sort of burial ground for an ancient religion, too many Archeologists have introduced new theories for the structure presumed to be erected in 2500 BC, over 4500 years ago.
Archeologists believe the find will shed some light into the mystery of Stonehenge.
