Other henges
 
Being Armenian this was of great interest to me. I saw on you tube a video about stone circles in Armenia older than Stonehenge perhaps 7000 years or more. The circle was made up of over 220 stone blocks and it is thought to be the oldest observatory on the planet.

Ness of Brodgar

The Ness of Brodgar is an archaeological site covering 2.5 hectares (6.2 acres) between the Ring of Brodgar and the Stones of Stenness in the Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site in Orkney, Scotland. Excavations at the site began in 2003. The site has provided evidence of decorated stone slabs, a stone wall 6 metres (20 ft) thick with foundations, and a large building described as a Neolithic temple.[1] The earliest structures were built between 3,300 and 3,200 BC, and the site had been closed down and partly dismantled by 2,200 BC

The structures at Brodgar are numbered in the order of discovery. As more of the site was uncovered and the interpretations improved, some numbers went out of use, so as of 2016 the key structures are numbered 1, 8, 10, 12 and 14.

Structures 1, 8, 12 and 14 appear to have been constructed around 3,000 BC. These stand on top of earlier remains that, as of 2016, have not yet been uncovered, but are thought to date to 3,300–3,200 BCE.[2]

Structure 1 has a complex history and appears to have been built on top of the remains of an earlier structure.[10] The official guide to the dig suggests that this structure appears to have been central to the site. Originally it was more than 15 metres (49 ft) long, but was radically rebuilt within about a century of its first construction: two doors were blocked up, a new door was inserted and a new wall built. It was decorated with many pieces of stone artwork, some of which were internal to the walls and would never have been seen while the building was in use.[10]

Some of the individual stones of structure 1 were painted in yellows, reds, and oranges using ochre pigment made of haematite mixed with animal fat, milk or eggs.[11][12] This is the first discovery in Britain of evidence that Neolithic people used paint to decorate their buildings.

Note, a stone circle isnt always part of a henge. A henge is defined as a roughly circular/ oval bank with internal ditch and a flat area of more than 20m. In this respect I dont think stonehenge qualifies!

woodhenge

Situated a mile (1.5km) from Stonehenge, Woodhenge was a vital component of the Stonehenge landscape that was constructed around 4,200 years ago. This early Bronze Age site consisted of six ovals of concentric timber posts surrounded by a ditch and an outer bank, which was broken by an entrance causeway in the north-east – the direction of the midsummer sunrise. Ring C was the first series of posts to be erected – 16 one-meter-thick posts each weighing around 5 tons were set in an oval-shaped pattern. In pristine condition, the monument would have appeared like a maze and it isn’t easy to walk around. However, when walked as a labyrinth it makes easy walking and perfect sense. You don’t bang into posts!
