Event Details

On the Road to Stonehenge

Stonehenge is one of the greatest mysteries of world prehistory. As an architectural project, its scope has seemed beyond the capabilities of Neolithic society, leading to widespread speculation about lost civilizations and even extra-terrestrials. The last decade of archaeological research has produced a wealth of new information about this mysterious stone circle and the people who built it. The results of the latest excavations and scientific analyses are providing major insights into questions such as why Stonehenge was built and why some of its stones were brought from nearly 200 miles away.

Professor Mike Parker Pearson
