Secrets of Stonehenge Lecture Series

Excavations in the Preseli Hills, Wales

With Dr Andy Brown

TUE 4 APR 2023, 6PM

This lecture will introduce the Stones of Stonehenge project. The project is a joint endeavour between several leading UK archaeologists, which has involved a large-scale excavation and geophysical survey around the Preseli hills – the source of the bluestones of Stonehenge. The project has sought to both understand the origins of the stones and the wider Neolithic landscape of West Wales.
