Woodhenge is an atmospheric Neolithic site close to Stonehenge. Probably built about 2500 BC, it was originally believed to be the remains of a burial mound, surrounded by a bank and ditch almost completely destroyed by ploughing. Aerial photography detected rings of dark spots in a crop of wheat, and today concrete markers replace the six concentric rings of timber posts which are believed to have been a ceremonial monument.
