Nine buildings have been excavated at Stonehenge!
Nine Neolithic-era buildings have been excavated in the Stonehenge world heritage site, according to a report in the journal British Archaeology.
The buildings all had plaster floors and timber frames, and most had a central hearth. Two, including a house possibly inhabited by a community chief or priest, were enclosed by ringed ditches, the largest measuring 131 feet across. Postholes indicate a wooden fence would have surrounded the smaller of the two structures.
I personally find it interesting that two of the buildings were ringed by a ditch…Stonehenge is also ringed by a ditch…I wonder if that was a form of protection from spirits and such in their day/region – a hermetic circle of sorts?
