Marden Henge (and Hatfield Barrow)



Wiltshire Heritage Museum

"Included in the 3,500 records of items in the collections of Wiltshire Heritage Museum in Devizes recently uploaded to the website, are records for the artefacts found at the 1969 excavation of Marden Henge, currently being excavated by English Heritage.

"The prehistoric site at Marden is 8 miles south east of Devizes and halfway between Avebury and Stonehenge. It is the largest henge monument in Britain, enclosing an area of around 14 hectares with its enormous bank and ditch. English Heritage's current excavations at Marden have resulted in more new and important discoveries being made, including the floor of a prehistoric rectangular building, estimated to be some 4,500 years old!"
