Perhaps little less know than Stonehenge , it is actually much large; the stones are not as high as Stonehenge, but there many more of them, covering much larger area; in fact it is the largest stone circle in Europe and probably predates Stonehenge.
It is believed that first stones were erected about 6,000 years ago, and the rest over a period of next 2,000 years.
Just a short walk away from the Museum are Avebury Manor and Gardens , dated back to 16th century.
It is also looked after by the National Trust.
The property was leased out for a time and when returned to NT, it was of course empty of any furniture.
Unlike Barrington Court (which the NT decided to keep unfurnished), Avery Manor was furnished in the collaboration with BBC.
Each room in the house reflects a different time in the life of the house, and because none of the furniture are museum pieces, you are encouraged to explore, to touch and sit on chairs and beds.
