The origins of Stonehenge: new discoveries and fresh perspectives        | Institute of Continuing Education skip to content

Institute of Continuing Education

Why is Stonehenge where it is? What was it for? Recent research has started to reveal large accumulations of Mesolithic material in the area. We explore a wide range of Mesolithic traditions – landscape use, mobility, settlement, tool use, hunting and domestic and ceremonial practices – for a wider understanding of huntergatherer societies. We examine later Neolithic monuments in the area, including the long barrows and the different building phases of Stonehenge.
