The Stonehenge World Heritage Site is one of the most famous prehistoric places in the world, but much about its origins and the choice of its location remain a mystery. Although recent archaeological investigations have revealed stunning new details of Neolithic and early Bronze Age monuments in its vicinity (Bowden et al 2015, 136), little attention has been paid to establishing the area’s ‘back story’. Until recently no residential and activity sites pre-dating the late Neolithic period had been identified within the area of the World Heritage Site. This was set to change with Blick Mead.
To date the project has generated much interest and this website seeks to satisfy some of the curiosity the project has generated and enables us to share the results of our research and other coverage to date.
