New Drawing of Stonehenge Unearthed

An important early sketch of Stonehenge has been discovered in a 15th-century manuscript in northern France. “The little sketch is a bird’s eye view of the stones, and shows the great trilithons, the biggest stones in the monument, each made of two pillars capped with a third stone lintel, which stand in a horseshoe in the centre of the circle. Only three are now standing, but the drawing… suggests that in the 15th century four of the original five survived.”
