As the decision on whether to drive a mile of new dual carriageways through the Stonehenge World Heritage landscape approaches, we thought it appropriate to publish our photograph of a much tinier excavation at Silbury Hill back in 2009.

How much tinier? About three thousand times tinier.

Plus, here’s a message from the Stonehenge Alliance:

Dear Friends and supporters,

In 3 days’ time Transport Secretary, Grant Shapps, will decide the fate of Stonehenge World Heritage Site.  Let’s show him how much people care about their world heritage whilst there’s time. Here is a message for you to send on social media or forward to friends:

FEW days left to #SaveStonehenge World Heritage Site!  Don’t let the Transport Secretary destroy our greatest link to our ancient past.  Building an Expressway across Britain’s world-famous prehistoric landscape is not the answer to a traffic jam.  SIGN https://stonehengealliance.org.uk/our-campaign/petition/
