Is this another find to help us understand Stonehenge?

Yesterday’s more interesting news centred on a newly-published report on the finds at Durrington Wells on Salisbury Plain. As the place where the builders of Stonehenge lived and feasted, Durrington Walls is key to unlocking the story of the wider Stonehenge landscape, and this astonishing discovery offers us new insights into the lives and beliefs of our Neolithic ancestor,” said Nick Snashall, National Trust archaeologist for the Stonehenge and Avebury World Heritage Site.

As the full significance of these finds are digested, so our history of Stonehenge will undoubtedly be revised. Just another example of how history is constantly being rewritten in the light of new evidence.
