Silbury Hill!

It's always intrigued me ever since I used it as one of the subjects for the photography element of my archaeology course (along with Avebury and West Kennet long barrow). They keep periodically digging into it, convinced there must be *something* in there, but finding nothing.

It does seem like its mostly empty - though they have obviously found a few fragments of stuff recently. But then - why shouldn't it just a be a large hill? If you want to show off what large things you can build, a hill is a good way to go really.
