The Age of Stonehenge

Archaeologists have performed the most detailed carbon dating procedure ever on the famous Stonehenge site, pinpointing its construction to around 2300 BC - several centuries later than previously thought. Professors Tim Darvill and Geoff Wainwright believe the area was used as a healing center, with people travelling from far and wide seeking cures for serious injuries and ailments.

The full story can be read here. The findings will feature on BBC Timewatch (BBC Two, Saturday 27 September).
