woodhenge

On our few hours walk in The Millingerwaard yesterday we came across this Woodhenge.
These memorial Trees-Woodhenge-consists of the remains of a former hardwood forest that once grew.This thick, 8500 years old oak logs are now as hard as stone.They are in 1996 during dredging operations in the river Waal found. These trees symbolize  the restoration of the original nature in the Millingerwaard. 
We all know Stonehenge. This is a prehistoric monument located in the English county of Wiltshire.

But I was surprised to find a Seahenge.


This Seahenge, a 4000 year old structure,  was discovered in 1998. This monument is located just off the coast of Norfolk England. The purpose of the circle to this day unknown.
The famous archaeological find is now housed in the newly refurbished Lynn Museum, at Kings Lynn.
