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.
