Six New Bodies Discovered Near Stonehenge

Archaeologists have unearthed the bodies of four adults and two children, believed to have lived over 4000 years ago, near Stonehenge. Last year, the remains of an archer were found near Stonehenge. Now six more bodies have been found. Radiocarbon dating places the reamins at around 2300 B.C.E., possibly during the building of the monument, the same age as the archer previously discovered. In the grave were found flint tools, a bone toggle and four pots of the type found in the Swiss Alps. The discovery helps scientists to understand the culture and trade of the people of this time.
