Researchers Find More Women Buried At Stonehenge Than MenBreaking News
Archaeologists have uncovered the remains of 14 women, believed to be of elite status, buried at the iconic prehistoric monument of Stonehenge.
The remarkable discovery was announced in the latest publication of British Archaeology, and the findings suggest a gender-equal society thousands of years ago.
"The archaeology now shows that as far as the burials go, women were as prominent there as men. This contrasts with the earlier burial mounds, where men seem to be more prominent," archaeologist Mike Pitts, who edits the publication,told Discovery News.
