Ian Sample, of The Guardian, has written an interesting and very informative article about the recent discovery of a "series of hidden chapels, burial mounds, and ritual shrines" in the area surronding Stonehenge, an UNESCO World Heritage Site.

"Researchers uncovered 17 new chapels and hundreds of archaeological features around the neolithic standing stones on Salisbury Plain, Wiltshire, including forms of monuments that have never been seen before.
Brought together for the first time in a digital map of the historic site, the discoveries transform how archaeologists view a landscape that was reshaped by generations for hundreds of years after the first stones were erected around 3100BC."
