When you’ve seen a few Stonehenge documentaries, you get a bit jaded about claims of dramatic new discoveries and myth-busting theories. Was it a Stone Age hospital? A ceremonial centre? Was it 500 years older — or younger — than previously thought?
Here’s another case for a rewrite of the guidebooks, as Professor Mike Parker Pearson examines ancient remains that were buried beneath the stones. They’re cremated bones but hi-tech analysis (strontium isotopes, carbon dating, etc) can still point to eye-opening theories about the festival calendar of Britain in 2500 BC and the arrival of the very first bling.
Documentary following archaeologist Mike Parker Pearson and a research crew as they make a series of discoveries that rewrites the history of the prehistoric monument in Wiltshire. Buried beneath the stones are ancient bodies, and the team has been granted permission to analyse them for the first time. The results of the investigation overturn the accepted view on when - and for what purpose - Stonehenge was built.
