Super-Stonehenge - level 3

Super-Stonehenge - level 3

Surrounded in mystery, Stonehenge is one of Britain's most famous landmarks. But now, in an unlikely discovery, a group of archaeologists have found another prehistoric monument, less than 3 kilometres from the original Stonehenge.

It’salready coined the name ‘Super-Stonehenge’ because the monuments at Durrington Walls measured 500 metres in diameter. They would have been built around 4,500 years ago.

The archaeologists at the Stonehenge Hidden Landscapes Project didn't dig underground.

Instead, they made the discovery using remote sensing technologies which showed them evidence of up to 90 standing stones, at 4.5 metres tall. Forming an arena in the shape of a C, the monument may have surrounded traces of springs.

Paul Garwood from the University of Birmingham has said this discovery fundamentally changes our understanding of Stonehenge and the world around it.

Difficult words: coin (to invent a new word), diameter (a line from side to side), spring (a place where water appears from the ground), fundamentally (completely).
