A ritual monument has been discovered in Scotland dating back to the time of Stonehenge

A huge monument “cursus”, an ancient ritual site, built around the same time as Stonehenge, has been discovered on the Scottish island of Arran.

The ruins of Kors, constructed during the Neolithic period (4000 BC to 2500 BC) are long, rectangular enclosures of earthwork, meaning that they are built by modifying the earth. Tall enclosures were often marked by wooden poles and were used in ceremonial processions, perhaps to honor the dead or ancestor worship. During some of those ceremonies, the old people would burn poles of wood, According to The ScotsmanThat reported the results for the first time.

The Kurs monument mounds were discovered using laser scanning. (Photo credit: Historic Environment Scotland)
