From the transcript:

ELIZABETH JACKSON: This week, archaeologists in Britain revealed a major discovery on Salisbury Plain near Stonehenge.

They say they've found a huge ancient settlement used by the people who built the stone circle.

Excavations at Durrington Walls, near the legendary monument, have uncovered remains of houses, tools and animal bones.

Researchers think the people who lived in this settlement built Stonehenge, and they've dated the houses to 2,500 BC.

Professor Mike Parker Pearson from Sheffield University is one of the archaeologists involved in the find.
