    STONEHENGE: Amazement at archaeologists' incredible discovery

    Using powerful ground-penetrating radar, investigators working around Stonehenge have detected a trove of previously unknown burial mounds, chapels, shrines, pits — and most remarkable of all — a massive megalithic monument made up of more than 50 giant stones buried along a 1,082-foot-long c-shaped enclosure.

    This news is unreal — and it's resetting virtually everything we thought we knew about Stonehenge.

    Fascinating... I live 10 minutes away from stonehenge now, being in the stones at solstice had been one of the best experiences of my life.

    I was at a free festival there in the 70s, with a bunch of bikers. I watched the sunrise over the Heel Stone. Never forgotten it. Wild days, you could climb and sit on the stones then.

    Not sure there's enough interest in the subject to start a thread, but I thought those of you here might be interested in this: A nearly-4,000 year old suit of armour has been discovered in Siberia, made completely out of bone.

    I recommend Avebury circle instead. Much smaller crowds, much less police and military surveillance. Much stronger ley line energy too.

    I spent Midsummer night in the Avebury circle a few years ago. It was the first dry solstice in many years and the skies were clear all night. About 4a.m. at first light a beautiful ground fog arose, making the stones appear to float above the ground. It was magical.

    Then at proper sunrise the 200 or so celebrants joined in a circle to witness a couple being handfasted.

    Unforgettable.

    ETA that same Solstice there were 11,000 celebrants at Stonehenge.
