Sea Henge

Timber Circle


More Seahenge secrets revealed

A second timber circle, 300 years older, was found near Seahenge. Instead of being composed of plain wooden posts, parts of it could have been decorated with carvings. The hypothesis is linked to the discovery of a carved wooden figure called the 'Dagenham Idol' (pictured on the website). The story will also be explained in the September issue of British Archaeology magazine.
