Woodhenge is an atmospheric Neolithic site close to Stonehenge. Probably built about 2500 BC, it was formed of six concentric ovals of standing posts, surrounded by a bank and ditch. The site was discovered by aerial photography in 1925, when rings of dark spots were spotted in a crop of wheat. Today, concrete markers show the positions of the timber posts.
