Super-Stonehenge – level 2

14-09-2015 15:00

Stonehenge is one of Britain’s most famous landmarks. But now, a group of archaeologists discovered another prehistoric monument. It is less than 3 kilometres from the original Stonehenge.

The experts did not dig underground. Instead, they used special technologies which showed them an arena in the shape of a C. The monument measured 500 metres in diameter and people started calling it ‘Super-Stonehenge’. It consisted of 90 standing stones at 4.5 metres tall.

One expert from the University of Birmingham said that this is an important discovery. It changes our understanding of Stonehenge and the world around it.

Difficult words: landmark (a monument or something else famous that you can visit), diameter (a line from side to side), consist (to be made up of).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
