An archaeological dig was held at Stonehenge in August and September.
Archaeologists say that this carved hedgehog or pig, found buried at Stonehenge, England beside a prehistoric baby, may be Great Britain’s earliest known toy. …the 2,000-year-old Bronze Age toy [is] carved in chalk.
According to Pajamadeen blog,
Mike Pitts, editor of British Archaeology magazine, agrees that the toy most likely was “made for a child as a personal toy.” …Pitts strongly believes that the toy represents a pig, rather than a hedgehog. Noting that domestic and wild pigs were widespread in the Salisbury Plain region , he added: “I would say it’s without doubt a pig…And once we get into historical times, we know the pig is quite important in Celtic mythology, though not—to my knowledge—hedgehogs.”
