Many stone circles exist across Britain, but Stonehenge is the most famous. For centuries, its construction and purpose have been debated. Now, archeological excavations combined with modern technology are revealing some of its secrets. Stonehenge was built in 2 main stages, ca. 3000 BCE and 2500 BCE. Martha Hanner will describe some of the discoveries, including the source of the mysterious bluestones, 230 km away in Wales, the analysis of cremated bone fragments buried under the bluestones, the excavation of a nearby Neolithic settlement dating from 2500 BCE and how pig bones tell us when the workers feasted.
