Secrets of Stonehenge - New BBC Radio Documentary - cheops
Francis Pryor reports on a vast archaeological project in Wiltshire, where a team led by Prof Mike Parker Pearson is challenging existing theories about the Neolithic society that built Stonehenge, the reason for the site's location and its purpose.
Archaeologists working near Stonehenge have uncovered what they believe is the largest Neolithic settlement ever discovered in Northern Europe. Remains of an estimated 300 houses are thought to survive under earthworks 3km (2 miles) from the famous stone rings, and 10 have been excavated so far. But there could have been double that total according to the archaeologist leading the work.
"What is really exciting is realising just how big the village for the Stonehenge builders was," says Professor Parker Pearson of Sheffield University.
