Quotes

...at the grass near the stones and thinking that we needed to find a longer hosepipe to get the parched patches to green up," Tim Daw told BBC News . "A sudden lightbulb moment in my head, and I remembered that the marks were where archaeologists had looked without success for signs that there had been stone holes, and that parch marks can signify them."
"Despite being one of the most intensively explored prehistoric monuments in western Europe, Stonehenge continues to hold surprises" English Heritage steward Tim Daw and colleagues wrote
...we'd had a longer hosepipe we might not have been able to see them," Greaney told The Telegraph , referring to the newly discovered scorch marks. "A lot of people assume we've excavated the entire site and everything we're ever going to know about the monument is known ... but actually there's quite aa lot we still don't know and there's quite aa lot that can be discovered just through non-excavation methods."
"The arrival of the robotic milkingmilking system launches a new chapter for the farm; one where we plan to tell the rich history of the place and involve many more people in its future."
