Archaeologists Excavated Ancient Houses near Stonehenge.

Archaeologist Julian Thomas of the Manchester University in England and colleagues excavated nine Neolithic-era buildings in Stonehenge:

The buildings all had plaster floors and timber frames, and most had a central hearth. Two, including a house possibly inhabited by a community chief or priest, were enclosed by ringed ditches, the largest measuring 131 feet across. Postholes indicate a wooden fence would have surrounded the smaller of the two structures.
