The large henge site of Avebury with its internal stone circles dates from about 2,600-2,100 BC. In the distance, the enigmatic mound of Silbury Hill was the largest manmade mound in Europe. Both sites probably served a religious or ceremonial purpose. This site is now in the care of English Heritage (2010).
