A vast network of neolithic tunnels built 12,000 years ago would have criss-crossed the UK and Europe.
The tunnels have been found underneath sites all over the continent, some are so small that a person can barely squeeze through while others are much larger. It is believed the tunnels may have been used as shelter against predators and may have also acted as a "highway" of sorts for people to travel from one place to another.
"Stone Age man created a massive network of underground tunnels criss-crossing Europe from Scotland to Turkey, a new book on the ancient superhighways has claimed."
