Who built the megaliths and why? What light do they throw on our origins and ourselves? To answer these questions, Peter Marshall sailed with photographer Liz Ashton Hill in a small boat from Scotland to Malta , visiting all the major megalithic sites on the way. The illustrated talk recounted the exciting 4000-mile voyage and argue that there was a sophisticated pan-European civilization in megalithic times linked by the sea.
