Prehistoric henge discovered in Newbold-on-Stour


20 May 2017
From the section Coventry & Warwickshire


A prehistoric henge, dating back almost 6,000 years, has been uncovered on farmland in Warwickshire.

The site, in Newbold-on-Stour, is earmarked for a housing development.

A geophysical survey led to an initial dig in 2016, but archaeologists have been "excited" to discover what was originally thought to be a burial mound is in fact a ritual gathering place.

Unlike Stonehenge, the site in Newbold consists only of a circular space, surrounded by a mound and ditch.
