Stone Age Britons used deer antlers—such as this one shown being excavated by archaeology student Ellie Hunt of the University of Bristol—as pickaxes during the building of Bluestonehenge, archaeologists said on October 5, 2009.

Named for the color of its long-gone stones, Bluestonehenge, or Bluehenge, was dismantled thousands of years ago, and many of its standing stones were integrated into Stonehenge during a rebuilding of the larger monument, according to the archaeologists.
