In 2016 Archaeologists Clearing An Army Camp Found A Network Of Tunnels Similar To Trenches

Salisbury Plain in the U.K. is well known for its Bronze Age and Neolithic settlements. After all, it’s where you’ll find the awe-inspiring gray columns of Stonehenge. But recently archaeologists have discovered something from the less-distant past, buried under the grounds of Larkhill Camp.

You might not have heard of Larkhill, but it’s an important site for the British military. Set just over a mile from Stonehenge, the facility has played host to soldiers since 1899. The first permanent dwellings were built there in 1914, at the start of the First World War – and it’s from that era that the new discovery hails.
