stonehenge village located

A village of small houses that may have sheltered the builders of the mysterious Stonehenge — or people attending festivals there — has been found by archaeologists studying the stone circle in England.



Eight of the houses, with central hearths, have been excavated, and there may be as many as 25 of them, Mike Parker Pearson said Tuesday at a briefing organized by the National Geographic Society.



The ancient houses are at a site known as Durrington Walls, about 2 miles (3.2 kilometers) from Stonehenge. It is also the location of a wooden version of the stone circle.
