Local History Talk – Stonehenge

Stonehenge – What’s New – A decade of science and speculation

by Tim Darvill

Stonehenge and the monuments in its surrounding landscape are the subject of numerous ongoing research projects as well as a source of constant speculation. This talk will critically review some of the recent literature and focus on advances in the phasing of the structures represented, the sources of the materials used, and how the place was used at different stages in its development.
