Ancient road to Stonehenge uncovered
Washington: Archaeologists have found a road that they believe may have led to the `mysterious` Stonehenge.
The archaeologists discovered two ditches, which were remains of an ancient pathway known as avenue, while a modern road near Stonehenge was being dismantled, LiveScience reported.
Archaeologists have known of this and believe that it led directly to the monument, but the modern road cut it in two, obscuring its purpose.
The ditches used to connect the truncated parts of the avenue.
The finding confirmed that the avenue, measuring 1 foot wide, went for about 0.3 miles straight to Stonehenge before snaking onward for about 1.5 miles to the Avon River in the nearby village of Amesbury.
