Road work can shackle Stonehenge discovery dating back to 4000 B.C

HONG KONG: The first innovation at Stonehenge is being vulnerable by a tunnel planned to switch traffic away from the site. The tunnel is a proposal to therapy the traffic problem of the A303 highway.
The dig, known as Blick Mead, has revealed an encampment with charcoal dating back to 4000 B.C. Burnt flints, flint tools and the remains of giant bulls known as aurochs, which are now extinct, have also been unearthed there. There is also some evidence of structures at the site, which would be threatened by the tunnel.
An earlier dig at Stonehenge revealed an amusing discovery. Frog legs were discovered there indicating that the Britains were dining on the delicacy 7000 years before the French.
It’s very possible that the Blick Mead site could rewrite the earliest history of Britain. It supports a theory that Stonehenge was built as a monument to earlier Neolithic ancestors.
Andy Rhind-Tutt, chairman of the Amesbury Museum and Heritage Trust, suggests that the tunnel would not effectively alleviate the traffic problem. He proposes rerouting the A303.Archaeologists David Jacques says more time is needed.
“The PM is interested in re-election in 140 days – we are interested in discovering how our ancestors lived six thousand years ago,” said archaeologist David Jacques, who made the discovery on a dig for the University of Buckingham.
“British pre-History may have to be rewritten. This is the latest dated Mesolithic encampment ever found in the UK.
