Archaeologists find 'Russian Stonehenge'

Archaeologists find 'Russian Stonehenge': "Russian archaeologists have found the site of a 4,000-year-old concentric wooden structure resembling Britain's Stonehenge. Evidence of the structure was found near Ryazan southeast of Moscow at the confluence of the Oka and Pronya rivers.

The area long known for its archaeological treasures was settled by tribes migrating from Eurasia thousands of years ago. A number of archaeological items found at the site have been dated by Bronze Age experts to the third millennium B.C., according to Ilha Ahmedov of Moscow's State History Museum."
