Three kilometres to the north-east of Stonehenge, Woodhenge is another monument. Dated to around 2,300 DC, originally it comprised six rings of wooden posts. It was probably covered with the roof, or perhaps the wooden posts were joined in the Stonehenge fashion.
Another feature which was worth mentioning is the Cursus. It had been built before the stone setting. When it was called the Cursus in the 18th century, it was thought to be some sort of racetrack. However, its true function remains a mystery.
English Heritage will be charged with caring for Stonehenge, Woodhenge, and the Cursus and will be caring for their good management and preservation for future generations.
There are some wonderful myths and legends and you can hear them on the radio tour at Stonehenge, Woodhenge, and the Cursus in ten different languages-English, French, German, Dutch, Spanish, Italian, Swedish, Russian, Japanese and Mandarin.
