Avebury Henge, West Country

We got to visit Avebury Henge, located about 25 miles from Stonehenge. We did not get to Stonehenge.

 

The building in the background is the museum, where many of the artifacts of the henge are stored for public view. Such things as deer antler shovels and picks, etc. These stones were never hammer dressed as the ones in Stonehenge were. Avebury is about a 1000 years older than Stonehenge.

 

Here is Caryl standing by one of the stones in the circle. The circle has a diameter of just over a mile.
