In this episode we explore the latest and amazing archaeological findings at Stonehenge, the very heart of the British Isles.
Bronze age graves, Neolithic pottery and the vestiges of a mysterious C-shaped enclosure that might have been a prehistoric industrial area are among the finds unearthed by archaeologists who have carried out preliminary work on the site of the proposed new road tunnel at Stonehenge.
One of the most intriguing discoveries is a unique shale object that could have been part of a staff or club found in a 4,000-year-old grave. Nearby is the resting spot of a baby buried with a small, plain beaker.
Ditches that flank the C-shaped enclosure contain burnt flint, suggesting a process such as metal or leatherworking was carried out there thousands of years ago.
Just south of the site of the Stonehenge visitor center, archaeologists came upon Neolithic grooved ware pottery possibly left there by the people who built the stone circle or visited it.
We end this episode by discussing the controversial tunnel being built close to Stonehenge and the impact and destruction that it can have on archaeology, artifacts and our history.
