Salisbury Plain Long Barrow

Wonderful aerial image of a Neolithic long barrow being excavated on the Salisbury Plain near Stonehenge. This structure was spotted in aerial images of the wheat field where it lies, which led to the investigation. It dates to around 3600 BCE. No word yet on whether any skeletons or other remains survived the thousand years plowing that came close to completely erasing it.
