It seems careless to overlook Britain's largest prehistoric site for the best part of 1,000 years - but that it what has happened in the case of the threat to the Thornborough Henges... And perhaps we will now take note of other ghostly palimpsests on the map of England such as the under-appreciated British Camp complex of the Malvern Hills and the mysterious drovers' highways that saw Serengeti-like movements of cattle in the prehistoric East Riding of Yorkshire and in Lincolnshire.

Thanks, Sunk!

Thornborough - 2000BC (or there abouts) an image showing the henges and their relationship with the post alignments and burial mounds.

More images here.

Thornborough is a triple-henge complex appearing to share the same astronomical alignment as the 3 main pyramids at Giza in Egypt. Does the Thornborough alignment mirror the Belt Stars of Orion?

More on this speculation here.

Air photo of the henges.

Maps & yet more text matterial here.
