This week, an international team of scientists working to map the landscape near Stonehenge announced a remarkable find—a huge monument, which is believed to be five times bigger than Stonehenge and may predate its famous neighbor. The site, dubbed “Superhenge,” was comprised of about 90 stones and lies less than two miles from Stonehenge, buried beneath the earthworks of a Neolithic settlement known as Durrington Walls.
The Egtved Girl (1,390 to 1,370 BCE) was a Nordic Bronze Age girl whose well preserved remains were discovered outside the town of Egtved, Denmark in 1921.
