Recent Historic England fieldwork in the core of the Stonehenge WHS to the south of the A303 has revealed considerable previously unknown archaeology. Large scale geophysical survey and targeted excavations have revealed previously unknown field systems and monuments, including a lost (or at least temporarily mislaid) long barrow, what appear to be the earliest field systems in the WHS, and a range of Middle Neolithic activity with significant implications for our understanding of the monumental landscape. This talk will outline work so far, our initial results (the project's analysis phase is ongoing) and some of the implications of these results for the broader story of the world heritage site.
