Recently a fascinating discovery has been made very near to Cranborne Chase and not too far from the New Forest in Hampshire. Two 6,000 years old Neolithic tombs have come to light thanks to aerial photography undertaken by Damian Grady of English Heritage, who managed to capture the marks left by these long barrows in the ground.

Dr. Wickstead, and a team from Kingston University in London, using technical and non-invasive skills with electromagnetic detectors and ultrasound were able to identify the tombs.

They are about fifteen miles from Stonehenge and very close to the great prehistoric area of Cranborne Chase.
