“Stonehenge has captivated generation after generation....

"Stonehenge has captivated generation after generation. Archaeologists over the years have cataloged the rocks, divined meaning from their placement and studied animal and human bones buried there. But modern technologies like aerial imagery and ground-penetrating radar have revealed more about the people for whom Stonehenge and nearby monuments held great meaning. Last month, researchers excavated the area around a toppled tree shelter built about 4300 B.C. The home, which predates Stonehenge by more than 1,000 years, hints at the progression of early Britons. While exploring the landscape, Andrew Testa photographed #Woodhenge, a site about two miles from Stonehenge that was built around 2600–2400 B.C. Today, concrete posts mark the places where concentric rings of timber posts once stood." By nytimes on Instagram.
