STONEHENGE REGION

Henge-infraredWhile the recent well-publicised searches for new discoveries at Stonehenge were going on, Merlindown looked slightly further afield and located what appears to be another system of henges and causeways which we believe were not previously known. A wide field view of the site is shown in this Merlindown infrared image.

Henge-close-upThis Merlindown deepscan image shows a close-up of the henge/circular feature located during our searches. In September we contacted the people carrying out the work, this via the University of Birmingham, to notify them of our findings. We sent them the images, together with the coordinates, in order to confirm whether or not it is indeed a new find and we are currently awaiting their reply. We will also be informing English Heritage of our results.
