A campaign group will meet at Stonehenge later in protest against government plans to widen the road next to it.

Three historians are uniting with the Stonehenge Alliance to oppose millions of pounds worth of investment by the Department for Transport which could see less congestion on the A303 and a tunnel under the World Heritage Site.

Around the world we see pictures of our fellow humans smashing the treasures of the past and count ourselves lucky that we live in a country which values its rich history and appreciates what it offers modern Britain.

Dan Snow, President of the Council for British Archaeology,

Stonehenge is one of Britain’s greatest treasures and it is important to note that English Heritage and National Trust support our plans.
