New Giant Henge at Stonehenge
David Vallis in his September 14, 2005 Salisbury Journal & Avon Advertiser article
titled "Dig throws new light on Stonehenge mystery"
reports that new archaeological work at Durrington Walls near Stonehenge has revealed an ancient large circular henge and causeway or walkway, leading ca. 30 meters from Durrington Walls to the Avon River. Archaeologists suggest that the causeway was used to transport the deceased from the henge to the river.
Well, my goodness, is that not exacty what was done in Egypt, as the deceased kings were transported by causeway to the Nile from their funeral location (e.g. a pyramid) to their final burial place? in later dynasties e.g. the Valley of Kings.
