Peeping at Avebury's prehistoric past

Archaeologists exploring Avebury's prehistoric past showed off their findings during an open day.  The experts, who are halfway through the month-long Negotiating Avebury Project, thrilled crowds with a guided tour. One of the key tasks of the team is to learn more about Beckhampton Avenue a form of prehistoric hallway which leads to the world-famous stone circle.
     Melanie Pomeroy-Kellinger, Avebury World Heritage site officer, is delighted with the progress so far. "This project is about transforming our understanding of the prehistoric landscape relating to Avebury," she said. "It is the final part of a five-year archeological research project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Board."
     The team have unearthed several pieces of Neolithic and Roman pottery as well as mysterious large stones.
