Our ancient ancestors’ relationship with the Continent will be revealed in a new exhibition at Stonehenge

Stonehenge exhibit shows relations of ancient Britain and Europe.

The collection, including a 6,500-year-old jade axe made in Italy, will go on display at Stonehenge on Friday.

Organisers say it highlights how there were different periods of connection with, and relative isolation from, Europe in Britain's history.

It will be the first time the objects have been displayed together.
