The scientists include a "course" discovered a rolling structure that extends over an area of ​​three kilometers. This construction is hundreds of years older than Stonehenge itself, and was probably used for rituals.

Archaeologists found below the surface also mounds, ditches and dolmen on. The discoveries could provide valuable information about the prehistoric site. For the excavations ground radars, magnetic sensors and 3D lasers.

Scientists know to this day not the function of the mysterious edifice. "Stonehenge is one of the most important and probably the most studied monuments in the world," said Professor Gaffney to Smithsonian Magazine . "The area is completely changed by these discoveries."

The famous stone monument of Stonehenge appears to be surrounded by a landscape that contains many more prehistoric ground tracks than previously thought. Due to the status of UNESCO World Heritage strict restrictions on archaeological prevail digs.

In the past four years, archaeologists from the University of Birmingham and the Austrian Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Archaeological Prospection conducted detailed ground scans with magnetometers and ground radars. These measurements went sometimes problematic because the soil in the last century was settled heavily disrupted by, among other music in the seventies and eighties in the meadows around the monument and the presence of British soldiers during the First World War.

The new sensor readings numerous, previously unknown bottom traces of archaeological structures came to light, including remnants of 17 new ritual monuments, vanished mounds and numerous smaller structures such as padded canals, large wells and property lines.

"Without disturbing the soil, we are able to identify new archaeological traces even Stonehenge - has long been one of the most intensely studied archaeological sites in the world," said Professor Marc Van Meirvenne.

UN.i1-PHI: Cool! Technology Unearths 17 New Monuments at Stonehenge!
    An extraordinary hidden complex of archaeological monuments has been uncovered around Stonehenge using hi-tech methods of scanning below the Earth's surface.
    The finds, dating back 6,000 years, include evidence of 17 previously unknown wooden or stone structures as well as dozens of burial mounds which have been mapped in minute detail.
    Most of the monuments are merged into the landscape and invisible to the casual eye.
    The four-year study, the largest geophysical survey ever undertaken, covered an area of 12 square kilometres and penetrated to a depth of three metres.
    British project leader Professor Vincent Gaffney, from the University of Birmingham, said: "Stonehenge is the most iconic archaeological monument, possibly along with the pyramids, on the planet.
