Similarities between Stonehenge and Japanese stone circles are set to be explored in a new exhibition at the memorial on the Salisbury Plains. Circles of Stone: Stonehenge and Prehistoric Japan will highlight similarities between the monuments and settlements of the middle and late Jōmon period in Japan and those built by the late Neolithic people of southern Britain, said The guard. A spokesman said that “although there was obviously no contact between Japan and Britain at the time, there are surprising parallels”.
