Silbury Hill Ancient Neolithic Monument, Avebury, UK


Southwestern England is home to some of the world's most important monuments from the Neolithic period, the most recent sub-division of the Stone Age.   Silbury Hill is one of these landmarks. It's a gigantic chalk mound near the village of Avebury in County Wiltshire.  Located about a half-hour drive north of Stonehenge, it stands 40 meters high (about 130 ft.), making it the tallest known prehistoric structure in Europe.  Seen here in this drone video by ChrisBaish, it's believed that the hill was constructed nearly 4.5k years ago.
