Stonehenge, Wiltshire, England, UK.

Archaeologists have discovered a smaller prehistoric site near Britain’s famous Stonehenge.  All that now remains of the site are the holes in which the stones once stood.  The discovery has been named Bluehenge, after the color of the 27 Preseli spotted dolerite stone from Wales which were used to form the site.  Located about a mile from Stonehenge, Bluehenge was discovered this summer by researchers from Sheffield University.
