Stonehenge - new science, more speculation - the story continues
Recent scientific advances in archaeology are having a considerable impact on our understanding of who built Stonehenge. How it was built and, perhaps more importantly, why are less easy to answer. This talk will examine the new evidence from ancient DNA and isotopic analysis as well as the practicalities of moving stones and large timbers. Julian is an archaeologist who has been involved with research on Stonehenge and its landscape for over 35 years. The author of the current Stonehenge guide book (and the ‘Pop Up Stonehenge’) he may be familiar as the presenter of BBC’s ‘Meet the Ancestors’. His exhibition ‘Wish you were here’ is was on display at the Stonehenge Visitor Centre and he is planning Britain’s biggest stone moving experiment in the near future.
