Item of interest: researchers have discovered a village near Stonehenge in England. Located about 2 miles from the stone circle, the dig has turned up 8 foundations, or floors, and researchers are estimating there may be as many as 25.
The village was carbon dated to about 2600 B.C., about the same time Stonehenge was built. The Great Pyramid in Egypt was built at about the same time, said Parker Pearson of Sheffield University.
The small wooden houses had a central hearth, he said, and are almost identical to stone houses built at about the same time in the Orkney Islands.
