Somewhat old news I suppose as I think the digs are done and dusted and there's nothing left to see. Although I suppose there wasn't anything left to see anyway, apart from in the imagination.

But there's lots to imagine: springs and wooden trackways and auroch's skulls on sticks...[...]olithic-ritual-site-in-suffolk

Pretty cool. The two links' descriptions don't tally entirely, but the guardian one suggests a spring enclosed by a causewayed enclosure, and the site re-enclosed up until the Iron Age, and only properly covered in the 11th century. Very intriguing.

And Scottish power have apparently diverted their cable line away from the area? so that would be a positive thing at least? does that suggest if there's more hidden there it'll stay unpoked for now?

Outrageous - neither article links it to Stonehenge!

The words ritual and ceremonies got in though :-)

Joking apart - great find and you can bet there are loads more around in this green and pleasant land of ours still waiting to be discovered!
