Stonehenge News Archive


I’m often sent information, articles and links relating to Stonehenge, but I don’t always have the time to follow them up or to write a full-length post about them. This is a shame, because we are all interested to different degrees in different aspects of the ruins, so the comments section beneath this page is for anyone who wishes to write in to alert everyone else to information or a news item about Stonehenge.

If you wish to contribute, just supply a brief description of the link you’re posting along with a few words about why it might interest others. If it’s presented clearly enough, it should become an interesting and perhaps useful archive for such things.

Why was Stonehenge built? The eight most popular theories.

A very nice video, published yesterday, of Mike Parker Pearson summarizing the study of Stonehenge over the past decade. Filmed on-site.

Bluestone Chips, Paper by Ixer and Bevins And A New Discovery: Intriguing new entry over at Tim Daw’s blog.

What Stonehenge looks like to birds. Or what it might be like to be a bird hovering around Stonehenge in a 1960s James Bond film (you’ll see what I mean).

Oh the drama! Lucky kids. Watch the video.

The “definitive docu-drama about the building and use of Stonehenge”.

I’m losing the will to live.

Aw, c’mon, their “definitive” ideas/theories/speculations are just as valid as anyone else’s (ahem…cough…gag…)

Funny. “News” implies new, which this most certainly is not.

Another fascinating example from Tim Daw of ‘things’ at Stonehenge waiting to be discovered and explained, in this case a curious depression by the North Barrow. No, I’d never noticed it before and I don’t know what it is.

Tim Daw shows the Stonehenge parchmarks were visible on a postcard made 50 years ago.

As was the case with the strange depression at Stonehenge to the east of the North Barrow – and countless others such as Stonehump, Stonehedge etc – these parchmarks have always been on public view. I don’t think there’s any one place among the ruins that needs special attention, because in my long experience, something of interest comes to light just about anywhere if only you look at it for long enough.
