5000-year-old monument may contain ancestors of Stonehenge builders

Archaeologists have unearthed a monument near Stonehenge (pictured) that contains the remains of people who lived there more than 5000 years ago, BBC reports. Known as the Cat’s Brain, the site used to house a central building with two flanking ditches. It sits on a farmer’s field, but went unnoticed until spotted from an aerial photo. Given the site’s age and location, experts believe Cat’s Brain could provide information about the ancestors of the Stonehenge builders and their way of life.
