Description - Avebury by Joshua Pollard
Designated a World Heritage Site, the landscape around Avebury in north Wiltshire contains a remarkable wealth of archaeological remains, including some of the most spectacular prehistoric monuments in Europe. Description and interpretation of the impressive Neolithic monuments within the area (including the Avebury henge itself) feature highly, but equally fascinating is the story of the later activity, including a probable Anglo-Saxon small town, a refuge from Viking attack, and the eventual intrusion of human settlement within the circle itself.
