This is another stone monument in Wiltshire but it is perhaps not as well-known as Stonehenge even
though they both are from Neolithic period. Avebury is a Neolithic henge monument containing three stone
circles around the village of Avebury. It consists of a huge circular bank and ditch with four causewayed
entrances and an inner circle of upright stones enclosing a further two stone circles, each with a central
feature. A double avenue of stones leads away from the southern entrance towards the Sanctuary stone
circles on Overton Hill, about a mile to the south-east.
