Stonehenge. Archaeologists believe it was constructed from 3000 BC to 2000 BC.

Stonehenge

The surrounding circular earth bank and ditch, which constitute the earliest phase of the monument, have been dated to about 3100 BC. Radiocarbon dating in 2008 suggested that the first bluestones were raised between 2400 and 2200 BC.[2] Another theory suggests the bluestones may have been raised at the site as early as 3000 BC.[3][4][5] The site and its surroundings were added to the UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites in 1986 in a co-listing with Avebury Henge. It is a national legally protected Scheduled Ancient Monument. Stonehenge is owned by the Crown and managed by English Heritage, while the surrounding land is owned by the National Trust.[6][7] Etymology The Oxford English Dictionary cites Ælfric's tenth-century glossary, in which henge-cliff is given the meaning "precipice", or stone, thus the stanenges or Stanheng "not far from Salisbury" recorded by eleventh-century writers are "supported stones".

Folklore. Stonehenge ‘bluestone’ quarries confirmed 140 miles away in Wales. Excavation of two quarries in Wales by a UCL-led team of archaeologists and geologists has confirmed they are sources of Stonehenge’s ‘bluestones’– and shed light on how they were quarried and transported.

Stonehenge ‘bluestone’ quarries confirmed 140 miles away in Wales

New research by the team published today in Antiquity presents detailed evidence of prehistoric quarrying in the Preseli hills in Pembrokeshire, helping to answer long-standing questions about why, when and how Stonehenge was built. The team of scientists includes researchers from UCL, University of Manchester, Bournemouth University, University of Southampton, University of Leicester, Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales, and Dyfed Archaeological Trust. The very large standing stones at Stonehenge are of ‘sarsen’, a local sandstone, but the smaller ones, known as ‘bluestones’, come from the Preseli hills in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. Stonehenge, England. British archaeologists have found the remains of a massive stone henge, or ceremonial circle, that was part of the ancient and celebrated Stonehenge complex, a find that is shedding new light on how the monument was built and its religious uses.The new henge, called 'Bluestonehenge' because it was built with blue Preseli dolerite mined more than 150 miles away in Wales, was on the banks of the River Avon, where ancient pilgrims carrying the ashes of their dead relatives began the journey from the river to Stonehenge, nearly two miles away.

Stonehenge, England.

Some are calling it the "little sister" of Stonehenge.The approximately 25 massive bluestones were erected in a circle about 5,000 years ago, and eventually were encircled by a ditch and an earthen embankment. Siedler stießen Steine um: Ur-Stonehenge wurde "begraben" Wissen Dienstag, 08.

September 2015 Um die Bedeutung der aufgestellten Stonehenge-Steine in England gibt es viele Theorien und noch mehr offene Fragen. Um diese zu beantworten, untersuchen Forscher des Stonehenge Hidden Landscapes Project seit 2010 Meter für Meter das Gebiet um Stonehenge - und werden fündig. Was die neuesten Entdeckungen aussagen, erklärt Professor Wolfgang Neubauer, Leiter des Ludwig Boltzmann Instituts, in einem Gespräch mit n-tv.de. n-tv.de: Prof.

Prof. Um 2600 vor Christus hat man dann begonnen, das, was wie eine natürliche Arena erschien, umzubauen. Sie haben mit verschiedenen modernen Techniken wie Bodenradar oder Magnetometer große Gebiete untersucht. The "Stonehenge Hidden Landscape Project" The remains of a major new prehistoric stone monument have been discovered less than 3 kilometres from Stonehenge.

The "Stonehenge Hidden Landscape Project"

Using cutting edge, multi-sensor technologies the Stonehenge Hidden Landscapes Project has revealed evidence for a large stone monument hidden beneath the bank of the later Durrington Walls 'super-henge'. Read more on this latest discovery... Stonehenge occupies one of the richest archaeological landscapes in the world, recorded in the course of intensive archaeological and antiquarian research over several hundred years, yet much of this landscape effectively remains terra incognita.

This project aims to address gaps in our knowledge and to advance the understanding of the Stonehenge landscape by conducting a cutting-edge geophysical and remote sensing survey at unprecedented scale. The project operates under the auspices of the National Trust and English Heritage. Gewaltiger Steinkreis nahe Stonehenge entdeckt. Versand erfolgt.

Das Rätsel von Stonehenge beschäftigt Archäologen seit Generationen.

Das Rätsel von Stonehenge ist um 200 Steine reicher: Archäologen entdecken ein riesiges, 4500-jähriges Monument 

Jüngste Forschungsergebnisse zeigen: Stonehenge war kein einsamer Steinkreis in der Landschaft. Schon lange bevor das heutige Wahrzeichen der Region errichtet wurde, schufen die Menschen in der Ebene von Salisbury mit riesigen Steinen beeindruckende Monumente. Ihre neueste Entdeckung stellten Wissenschaftler des "Stonehenge Hidden Landscape Project" heute auf einer Konferenz vor: Unter dem Wall der drei Kilometer von Stonehenge entfernten steinzeitlichen Anlage von Durrington Walls standen einst mindestens 200 bis zu 4,5 Meter hohe Steine - die Vorläufer von Stonehenge.

Ein Teil von ihnen liegt heute noch an Ort und Stelle. Fluss wusch Klippe aus Felsen Durrington Walls thronte einst riesig in der Landschaft.

"Wir gehen davon aus, dass die Leute versuchten, sie als Baumaterial wiederzuverwerten", sagt Neubauer.
