Around Stonehenge

Stonehenge actually forms part of a huge complex of ancient monuments.

North of Stonehenge and running roughly east–west is the Cursus, an elongated embanked oval; the smaller Lesser Cursus is nearby. Theories abound as to what these sites were used for, ranging from ancient sporting arenas to processional avenues for the dead. Two clusters of burial mounds, the Old and New Kings Barrows, sit beside the ceremonial pathway the Avenue, which originally linked Stonehenge with the River Avon, 2 miles away.
