Event details

We will be holding a one-day cultural event on Saturday 13 December 2014 consisting of a series of short talks led by experts from within Archaeology at Southampton. This thought-provoking and inspiring conference will offer you the opportunity to learn and engage in discussion about Stonehenge and other great monuments.

Stonehenge remains an iconic symbolic of Britain’s prehistory, but in popular imagination it is often treated as a unique and isolated monument. This study day will place the creation of Stonehenge within its proper context: exploring how our knowledge of the monument and its surrounding landscape has been transformed through archaeological research over the last decade; and examining the wider phenomenon of great monument building in other regions of the British Isles (such as Orkney and East Yorkshire) during the late 4th and 3rd millennia BC.
