Event Details

Fed up with Regency architecture? Come along and explore the first visible enclosing of a large communal space in our region. Situated in a commanding position above East Brighton, close to the Race Course, lays one of Britain's earliest Stone Age monuments. The hill top here was chosen some 5,500 years ago as the site for a ceremonial enclosure, an area for undertaking feasting, burials and communing. Dating to c. 3,500 B.C. the monument represents one of the earliest ritual circles in northern Europe and predates later Neolithic enclosures like Stonehenge and Avebury by up to 1,000 years. A c.60 minute guided tour of this unique part of Brighton & Hove's heritage will be given by Jon Sygrave from UCL's Institute of Archaeology. The tour will provide an introduction to the early British Neolithic in Sussex and the layout and significance of the Whitehawk enclosure.
