Stonehenge for the ancestors Part 2: Synthesis

Mike Parker Pearson, Joshua Pollard, Colin Richards, Julian Thomas, Chris Tilley, Kate Welham

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This is the second of four volumes which present the results of that campaign. It includes studies of the lithics from excavations, both from topsoil sampling and from excavated features, as well as of the petrography of the famous bluestones, as identified from chippings recovered during excavations. Other specialist syntheses include soil micromorphology. The volume provides an overview of Stonehenge in its landscape over millennia from before the monument was built to the last of its five constructional stages. It includes a chapter placing Stonehenge in its full context within Britain and western Europe during the third millennium BC.
