Stonehenge link to other ancient sites

Archaeologists Colin Richards of Manchester University and Joshua Pollard of Bristol University have a new theory on Stonehenge: it not isolated but stood as the link between a ritual burial mound and a timber circle.

The team of experts believes that a variety of ancient sites spread across the Salisbury Plain were connected to Stonehenge, including Woodhenge, an ancient timber circle, and a sandstone Sarsen stone found near the River Avon. "There's an overarching scheme of things which links Stonehenge to the broader landscape," said Julian Thomas, professor of archaeology at Manchester University, adding that the Stonehenge shouldn't be seen in isolation.
