As the author, with Caroline Malone, of Stonehenge in the "Digging for the Past" Series (Oxford University Press), I'm delighted to keep reading about new finds at Stonehenge.

The latest is: nine Neolithic-era buildings have been excavated in the Stonehenge world heritage site, according to a report in the journal British Archaeology.

The structures, which appear to have been homes, date to 2,600-2,500 B.C. and were contemporary with the earliest stone settings at the site's famous megalith. They are the first house-like structures discovered there.

What seems to be happening, is that now that Stonehenge is being looked at as an ancient landscape, more and more information will be unearthed.
