Avebury was also built in the 3rd millennium BC though, it's the largest megalithic stone circle in the world and a World Heritage Site so shld be an acceptable answer.
* Minutes were invented by al-Biruni around 1000 AD.
* A 24 hour day was first used in the 2nd century BC, possibly introduced by Hipparchus. An earlier version of hours was introduced in the Near East in the 2nd millennium BC that divided the day and night into 12 segments, the length of which changed with the seasons.
* The month, on the other hand, dates to the earliest calendars as far back as 8000 BC, such as the Warren Field calendar which tracks lunar months.
So the week is clearly the best answer. That said, I'm willing to consider other answers if evidence is provided. Any historians want to chime in?
