July 23rd – Ancient monuments

Today’s picture is from a nice stroll around Avebury. The neolithic henge monument containing three stone circles, around the village of Avebury in Wiltshire, in southwest England. One of the best known prehistoric sites in Britain, it contains the largest megalithic stone circle in the world.

The Neolithic, the final division of the Stone Age, began about 12,000 years ago when the first developments of farming appeared in the Epipalaeolithic Near East, and later in other parts of the world.

There are loads of websites giving details about Avebury, but here is a link to one which is a little different…. enjoy x
