The new findings will be published Friday (June 9) in the journal British Archaeology.

At the centre of Durrington Walls you are standing in the biggest complete henge in Britain.

This mysterious lone sarsen megalith lies between Woodhenge and the Stonehenge Cursus.

It's a rare example of a naturally placed sarsen stone as the stones used at Stonehenge are thought to have come from the Marlborough Downs, to the north.

Right by the wooden circles, archaeologists also unearthed artifacts such as animal bones, remnants of ancient structures and pottery shards suggestive of late Neolithic housing. The settlement also neatly overlaps with the raising of Silbury Hill, just two or three fields away, suggesting that some people from the settlement may have been involved in its construction, Whittle said.

"They could have been the people who were doing this," Whittle speculated.

Then, they used the dug-out earth to backfill and cover the base of the posts and create a huge palisade.

The posts were very closely set, so it's likely that hundreds and hundreds of trees would have been cut down to build the monument, Whittle added.

Nearby, the largest prehistoric human-made chalk mound, called Silbury Hill, looms over the landscape, though its original purpose remains obscure.

Avebury is also home to Avebury henge, a historic stone monument similar to Stonehenge.
