More bodies at Stonehenge

More bodies have been found at Stonehenge in a grave that may span generations about the time of the shift from stone age to bronze age. There were signs the grave had been reopened to allow for more burials, which is typical of the stone age, but the grave also contained pottery, a practise begun in the bronze age. This find comes one year after archaeologists found the archer, in a grave containing about 100 items, including gold 'earrings', pottery, flint arrowheads and tools, leather wrist bands, copper knives, tools for flint working, and a shale belt. The number of items in the grave may indicate he was a local king.
