BURIED standing stones found near Stonehenge may be the largest prehistoric monument ever built in Britain to remain intact, archaeologists have said.

The 100 stones were discovered by ground-penetrating radars at Durrington Walls ‘superhenge’, which the Stonehenge Living Landscapes team has been investigating.

The ancient site, just three kilometres from Stonehenge in Wiltshire, is believed to have been built approximately 4,500 years ago, and the new find was on the edge of the area which had not yet been studied.

Vince Gaffney, lead researcher, explained that the stones had been lost to archaeology but found due to modern technology.
