Ancient Site Found by WildFire

All right, so the site was already known, but no one could get a good look at it.
ARCHAEOLOGISTS have snapped the first picture of an ancient monument on the North York Moors near Scarborough which could date back more than 4,500 years to neolithic times.
Aerial surveyors from English Heritage recently flew two sorties over moorland near Goathland after a wildfire swept across 62 acres revealing the full extent of a prehistoric stone enclosure and multiple stone cairns.

The blaze struck in early October, but caused no lasting damage to the environment.

However, it gave experts their first view of the scheduled monument which measures about 485ft by 246ft.
“Whatever its origins, it stands as reminder that the history of North Yorkshire is far from done and dusted, but is still being written.”

THAT is really rather astounding!

I know the North Yorks moor intimately, it being a miliotary training area (NOT closed). I would have thought that we knew every inch.

Just goes to show.

Yet they tell us they know what is on Venus?
