Archaeologists have made a dramatic discovery in Wiltshire, which has led to the town of Amesbury now officially being declared the oldest settlement in Britain.
It was previously thought that Thatcham in Berkshire held the honour. But carbon dating of objects dug up 40 miles west of Thatcham - in Amesbury, now reveal that humans have lived there - for more than ten millennia.
The revelation has also thrown new light on why Stonehenge was built close to the Wiltshire town. Martin Dowse reports.
It's National Chip Week so, naturally, an artist has created Great British landmarks, including Stonehenge and the White Cliffs of Dover, out of chips!
Prudence Staite spent 6 months planning and constructing the sculptures.
The White 'Chips' of Dover used a total number of 70 chips to build, taking 4 hours to build.
Stonehenge was obviously a little trickier taking 5 hours to create and using 75 of the popular potato food.

Work will begin today to knocked down the old visitor centre at Stonehenge.
A new £27 million replacement was opened in December last year, which was one of the biggest financial projects ever undertaken by English Heritage.
The new centre includes a 360-degree virtual experience, allowing visitors to feel like they are standing on the stones.
The new visitor centre at Stonehenge has come in for heavy criticism from some tourists who are claiming that being at the centre - which opened last month - is chaotic because of long delays and severe overcrowding.
Some of the complaints about the experience include reports of visitors queuing for more than an hour to board the 'land train' which carries people from the centre to the stones. The journey of a mile-and-a-half takes just ten minutes.
Managers have said that the majority of feedback has been positive. They say that they are trying to address the problems. Robert Murphy reports.
Managers at Stonehenge's new visitor centre say feedback has been "overwhelmingly positive", though they admit there have been "some issues."
The statement comes after the centre received a number of complaints about overcrowding and delays in the transport to the stones.
There has been huge interest in Stonehenge since the new visitor centre opened towards the end of December. On one day alone we welcomed 5000 visitors which is along the same levels as during our peak summer season.
This is a brand new operation, on a completely different scale to the old visitor centre, and naturally during these early days, there have been some issues. But we are solving them, we have increased our shuttle service taking people to the stones and from 1 February, our timed ticketing system will swing into place.
The majority of feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, visitors have been fascinated by our new exhibition and love the sense that the stones are now reconnected with the wider landscape. We appreciate all the feedback we've received and we would ask people to be patient while we iron out the few remaining issues.
The new £27 million visitor centre at Stonehenge is struggling to cope with the amount of visitors it receives.
Tourists have described the scenes at the centre as 'chaotic', with staff and volunteers also voicing their concerns with having to cope with thousands of visitors every day.
People have also expressed their anger through tourism websites such as TripAdvisor, criticising the ticketing and transportation from the centre to the mysterious stones.
Queues of more to an hour to go and see the stones has been the main complaint.
English Heritage has called for patients while they deal with 'teething problems'.
