Archaeologists stumble across homes thought to house people who built Stonehenge

Excavators have discovered remains of ancient houses believed to belong to a settlement who built the famous Stonehenge.

Archaeologists say this is the largest Neolithic village ever found in the UK with hundreds of people believed to be living there.

Discovered in Durrington Walls, near the Salisbury Plain monument, the dwellings date back to 2,600 to 2,500 BC which is around the same period that Stonehenge was built.

There is, however, still some debate surrounding the date Stonehenge was built.
