Stonehenge and you

It is reported that a new ancient monument, a wood henge, has been discovered, some 900m from Stonehenge.

I shouldn't be surprised if it were roughly where they had been going to build the vile tourist centre. It is probably an ancient tourist centre.

The BBC reported Professor Gaffney as saying he was "certain" they would make further discoveries as 90% of the landscape around the giant stones was "terra incognita" - an unexplored region.

Perhaps the most astonishing thing is that the BBC website felt it had to translate 'terra incognita' for its readers.
