Archaeologists discovered a circle of deep shafts 3km from Stonehenge. The discovery is considered the largest prehistoric structure ever found in Britain.

The structure, that surrounded the settlement of Durrington Walls, consists of a 2km wide circle of large shafts measuring more than 10 meters in diameter by 5 meters depth and was excavated more than 4,500 years ago.
