Great job Will Maybe we will see your documentries on TV in the future, it's great to see young people interested in archaeology and history, good on you! Did you film the footage? Have you been to Stonehenge?

I only wish I could have been, but no. I found some of the footage on line, and i edited it to fit. I do hope to visit it one day though!

A visit to Stonehenge is actually a tad depressing. You can't get within 150 feet of the stones, except on the solstice. You walk around the site (in a circle of course, with a few hundred other people) on these green rubber mats listening to an automated tour guide (like a cell phone) and you punch in the number of the site that you're at; "If you happen to be at this position on a spring equinox, blah, blah, blah..." By the way Will, great video! Keep up the good work.

lol fair enough, my Mum and Dad visited it years ago when you could walk right up to it but I can imagine the sterile tourist conditions today! I don't remember it being such a sterile event, such as Likely Guy mentioned, when I was there in 1983. But yes, it was a bit disappointing since I was expecting something grander in scale. But in any case at least I can say I've seen it in person. cormac

Stones are not truely as tough as we believe.I did come away with a free souvenir though. It's a small piece of whitish flint, originally from a small boulder, that the builders used ... [More]

Thus, the relevance of history. In the early 90's a friend of mine gave me a golf ball sized chunk of the Berlin Wall. Flat on one side with yellow and red spray paint.
