Audible Editor Reviews

A brief introduction to the mysteries, legends, and science surrounding this strange prehistoric monument in southwest England. Is it an ancient temple, a site for astronomical observation, a ritual burial site, or an offering from prehistoric aliens? Performer Luca James Lee shares what we know and don't know about the iconic standing stones, and narrates in a smooth, pleasant voice that's easy to hear. This is a useful overview for those who are new to learning about one of the most fascinating prehistoric sites in the world.

Publisher's Summary

Learn the history of Stonehenge with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series. Five thousand years ago, at the same time as the pyramids were being constructed in Egypt, another monolithic structure was being built in the English county now known as Wiltshire. This structure, a complex series of earthworks and towering standing stones, is one of Europe's most famous prehistoric sites. But while we know quite a lot about who built the pyramids, and how and why they were constructed, we know very little about Stonehenge. Was it an astronomical observatory? A place of magic and ritual? A burial ground? A place of healing? The debate still rages.

Part of the reason why Stonehenge remains such a mystery, is that it was constructed by people who had no form of written language, so there are no records, other than the stones themselves.

So who were these mysterious stonemasons?
