Avebury Henge and Stone Circles

Avebury is a Neolithic henge monument containing three stone circles. It's part of a set of Neolithic and Bronze Age ceremonial sites that formed a large sacred landscape. They include West Kennet Avenue, Adam and Eve Stones, West Kennet Long Barrow, among others.

It's believed that the Avebury complex was constructed between 2850 BC and 2200 BC. The henge survives as a huge circular bank and ditch. Within the henge is the largest megalithic stone circle in Britain which in turn encloses two small stone circles.

The Avebury monument is a UNESCO World Heritage site and it's situated around the village of Avebury in Wiltshire, England.
