Stonehenge
Stonehenge is located in Wiltshire — approximately 90 miles west of London. One of the world's most famous and awe-inspiring ancient sites, Stonehenge still remains one of the great mysteries of the world. However, Stonehenge is not the only ancient site in the area. Others include:

"Bluehenge"
A "second prehistoric stone circle" was secretly unearthed by archeologists in the Summer of 2009. Dubbed "Bluehenge," it is considered to be one of the most important prehistoric finds in decades.



Avebury
Marlborough Downs

— Avebury stands on the Marlborough Downs and is located about 25 miles north of Stonehenge.

Like Stonehenge, it is also one of the most famous groups of megaliths in the world... and most definitely worth a visit. Free access to the circle. Open daily.

Durrington Walls —
The Largest Neolithic Village Ever Found in Britain

In January 2007, an exciting archeological discovery took place at Durrington Walls, located north of Woodhenge, about two miles from Stonehenge.

New excavations uncovered remains of what archeologists believe is an ancient village of the workers who erected Stonehenge.

The 4,600-year-old ruins appear to form the largest Neolithic village ever found in Britain. The houses at Durrington Walls date back to 2600 B.C. — making it approximately the same age as the earliest Stonehenge formation.

Recently, researchers theorized that the village by the Durrington Walls (where archaeologists excavated several homes) was built to accommodate the living, while Stonehenge was built to honor the dead.

Inside the excavated houses at Durrington Walls, archaeologists found flint tools, part of a dress pin, swept-away debris, imprints of beds and a dresser, and the remains of an oval-shaped hearth.


Calanais Stones
Outer Hebrides, Scotland
OK... so this isn't near Stonehenge, but it bears mentioning nontheless.

The 47 standing Stones of Calanais (or Callanish) are located on the island of Lewis, the northernmost
of the Outer Hebrides in Scotland.

The massive upright megaliths are more than 5,000 years old. Calanais Stones stand 15 feet high and predate Stonehenge. Scientists believe that the inner circle of 13 stones is aligned with the planets and stars.
