Links: Looking forward to the ‘World of Stonehenge’ at the British Museum
With just over a fortnight until the opening of the British Museum’s World of Stonehenge exhibition, here’s a few links you might find interesting:
- The world of Stonehenge: placing a famous monument in context (Current Archaeology)
- Podcast: The world of Stonehenge. In this episode of The PastCast, Dr Jennifer Wexler, project curator, describes how the exhibition puts the monument in its wider context, exploring the natural and material landscapes its builders would have known; the technological, cultural, and social changes they witnessed over 1,500 years; and the ideas and identities it was intended to express.
Around 30 artefacts from the Ness of Brodgar excavation are on temporary loan to the museum for the forthcoming exhibition, which runs from February 17, 2022 until July 17, 2022.
