Marden Henge (and Hatfield Barrow)



Take a guided tour of Marden Henge

Archaeologists are excavating at Marden Henge, a site that could dwarf Stonehenge in size and is potentially more significant.

It is one of Britain's least understood ancient sites, dating back around 4,500 years.

Dave Fellows, an archaeologist working on the site, gave BBC correspondent Robert Hall a guided tour.

Ooh it's all so exciting.
There's another video here too, Moss.

I've been quietly following the progress of this dig both here and elsewhere; just watched the two video links above. It is good to see the hard work and dedication of what looks like a young group of archaeologists pay off with such valuable results. They just seem to get on with it, produce results and don't seem to be bothered about personal recognition.

Well done them!
