Hidden 'Stonehenge' discovered in Ireland

A Neolithic henge that had lain hidden for centuries has been revealed in Ireland thanks to a recent drought.
The discovery was made by historian Anthony Murphy who had been flying a drone over wheat fields in Newgrange, Ireland during an extended spell of particularly hot summer weather.

The henge, which can be seen in the news report below, appears as a large, dark circular feature.

Measuring 250ft across, it would have likely held both communal and ritualistic significance.

"I had it in the back of my mind that some previously unrecorded archaeological sites had been revealed due to the drought conditions in Britain," Murphy wrote.

"I hadn't the faintest expectation that I would find anything new."

Archaeologists believe that the find is likely to date back more than 5,000 years.
