Everyone knows what Stonehenge is. Durrington Walls? Not so much.
It's another neolithic henge enclosure that's on the same site as Stonehenge. There are signs that people lived there over 4,000 years ago, and research suggests that it was a complementary monument to Stonehenge. Like Stonehenge, Durrington Walls has been known about for quite some time, but what was just discovered yesterday is that there's another monument buried underneath Durrington Walls.
It consists of 90 giant stone monoliths lined up in C-shaped formation. Here's what they would look like if they weren't buried (and if they were in N64 graphics):
The stones are 15 feet tall (two feet taller than Stonehenge) and ~4,500 years old. They were discovered by researchers using "ground-penetrating radar," and were built at the same time as or possibly before Stonehenge. Scholars think that they were deliberately buried to make way for the Durrington Walls, and that the buildings of the time period were "modified or recycled" over time.
So yeah, those are some pretty chill rocks.
