UK: Archaeologists have unearthed the site of a smaller version of Stonehenge between the famous Stonehenge and the Avon River. 'Bluehenge' was discovered several months ago and experts believe that there may be more henges as yet undiscovered.

The two sites are apparently comparable in age and may have originally been used in conjuction with each other. All the stones from Bluehenge appear to have been moved to enlarge Stonehenge several centuries after construction.

"It's no longer Stonehenge standling alone. It has to be seen in context with the landscape," said Professor Tim Darvill, an expert on monuments.

OK, how do you bury something like that.

Reading, fool, can you do it? ;)

It tells right in the OP: "[a]ll the stones from Bluehenge appear to have been moved to enlarge Stonehenge several centuries after construction" and in the link it tells you "[n]one of the stones at Bluehenge remain, but chips found in the bottom of excavtaed holes suggest the stone was the same as that used at Stonehenge".

It wasn't buried.
