Stonehenge "Twin" Revealed

Each summer solstice the sun rises above Stonehenge's outlying Heel Stone (at top center), casting its rays into the center of the monument. The newfound henge is also oriented to the solstice sunrise, with entrances to the northeast and southwest.

"This new monument is part of a growing body of evidence which shows how important the summer and winter solstices were to the ancient peoples who built Stonehenge," said Amanda Chadburn, an archaeologist with English Heritage, the government agency that manages the Stonehenge World Heritage site.
