Stonehenge is being scanned using modern laser technology to search for hidden clues about how and why it was built.

All visible faces of the standing and fallen stones, many of which are obscured by lichen, will be surveyed.

Some ancient carvings have previously been found on the stones, including a famous Neolithic "dagger".

The survey is already in progress and is expected to finish by the end of March.

"The surfaces of the stones of Stonehenge hold fascinating clues to the past," said English Heritage archaeologist Dave Batchelor.

The team will be looking for ancient "rock art", but also for more modern graffiti, in a comprehensive survey of the site.

Among those who have left their mark in the stones is "Wren" - thought to be Sir Christopher Wren, the architect who designed London's St Paul's Cathedral.

Wren's family had a home nearby, where he is known to have spent time, adding credibility to the claim.

The new survey will be the most accurate digital model ever for the world famous prehistoric monument, measuring details and irregularities on the stone surfaces to a resolution of 0.5mm.

The previous survey in 1993 was photographic, and only measured to an accuracy of about 2cm.

"This new survey will capture a lot more information on the subtleties of the monument and its surrounding landscape," said Paul Bryan, head of geospatial surveys at English Heritage.

Laser scanning is also being used to map the earthworks immediately around the stone circle, and the surrounding landscape, as part of a wider project.

English Heritage has proposed a new £25m visitor centre at Stonehenge and closing parts of the A344, which runs just yards away from the landmark.

  • interesting ! This illiuka call it (Nibiru) Telda. And that Anastzis Pueblos live on that globe. Gess if some Niburian Starseeds will go off, and travel with Nibiru.
  • Many secrets remain surrounding the creation of Stonehenge. Archaeologists try to unravel the mystery.

  • 4000 year old Alien Grey carving surfaces at the Ancient site of Stonehenge in England during stone surface testing. This is an AUTHENTIC CARVING in the surface of the stone and has been RADIO CARBON 14 DATED to be over 4000 years old. This is NOT a stain or overgrowth. This is an AUTHENTIC stone carving, etched out by Ancient Man.

  • I visit Stonehenge in July 2010 Ravinder. It was first of all a Croup Circle tour. Beautiful, spiritually England.

    Namaste!

  • AN EARLIER VIDEO OF STONEHENGE

    December 21, 2012 represents the date of the end of the original use of Stonehenge as a timing device. The exact date of the last Winter solstice that will reflect light into stonehenge. One more piece to the doomsday puzzle has been presented with scientific based evidence. Whether the world is doomed to come to an end or not, I do not have the answer, but one thing is for certain, something is going to happen.
    The Stonehenge connection to the Maya Civilization and Sumerians is too strong to ignore. Stonehenge is a sophisticated astronomical observatory, which can predict with pinpoint accuracy, the alignments of the stars as well as solar and lunar eclipses. The recent archeological findings of Sumerian numerals carved into the stones and Radio Carbon dated to 3100 BC are a definitive link to both the Sumerians as well as the Mayans.
    Maya Civilization was involved in research that predicted a return date of Nibiru passing Earth coinciding with the Winter Solstice of 2012; specifically at 11.11 UT, 21st December 21, 2012
    The term "Nibiru" comes from the Sumerian cuneiform tablets and writings dating 5,000 years old. The term Nibiru means "Planet of the crossing", and it's cuneiform sign was often a cross, or various winged disc. Some authors believe that the observations of ancient astronomers provide proof that Nibiru is an actual planet or brown dwarf in our solar system. These claims are for the most part dismissed as fringe science or pseudoscience by the mainstream scientific communities of archaeology and astronomy. According to theories of Sumerian cosmology, Nibiru was the twelfth member in the solar system family of planets (which includes 10 planets, the Sun, and the Moon). It was the home of a technologically advanced human-like alien race, the Anunnaki of Sumerian myth who survived and later came to Earth, subsequently genetically engineered our species. Their travelling to earth was the result of their failing atmosphere.
