Researchers at Stonehenge studying the enamel of the tooth of an archer may have found a Swiss connection. The tooth of the Amesbury Archer found at Stonehenge may lead anthropologists in a new direction: the Alps. The 4,000 year old tooth taken from a grave at Stonehenge last year may have originated in the Alps in what is now Switzerland, Austria or Germany. According to researchers, the man would have been an important person, probably playing a key role in the construction, and he came from that area according to the oxygen isotopes in his teeth. The grave where the remains were found also contained lavish items, including gold and pottery, leading him at first to be dubbed the "King of Stonehenge."
