Stonehenge studies hit the news again

Professor Tim Darvill, Professor Geoff Wainwright and Dr. Miles Russell Stonehenge continues to provoke lively debate

The national press have been reporting on investigations carried out by our own Professor Tim Darvill, alongside Professor Geoff Wainwright, which will culminate in a BBC Timewatch programme due to be broadcast on Saturday the 27th of September. The programme explores several new theories on the origins of Stonehenge including the concept that this ancient location was once used as a place of healing.

Their research also suggests that the ring's core of bluestones were erected up to 300 years later than originally claimed.

In addition, the pair are preparing to publish an academic report of their excavation, and will announce their findings to their peers next month, in a lecture at London's Society of Antiquaries.
