The Stonehenge Hidden Landscapes Project

February 25 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

ORDINARY MEETING OF FELLOWS LECTURE

The Stonehenge Hidden Landscapes Project and the Durrington Walls Pits Circle

by Professor Vincent Gaffney FSA

Booking is now closed for this lecture but you can join us on YouTube here.

At a time when the landscape of Stonehenge is a matter of significant public debate, it is important that research continues beyond the bounds of the A303 upgrade.  The Stonehenge Landscape Project, an international collaborative project including a consortium of British Archaeologists and the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute, remains active and has carried out extensive remote sensing surveys across this important landscape. Having undertaken more tens of square kilometres of survey across the landscape, the significance of such work goes far beyond the discovery of individual sites or monuments. The extensive survey data can now begin to be integrated with other studies and excavations within this key landscape and provide further insights into the structure of features at greater spatial scale. The recent discovery of a circle of massive features encircling the henge at Durrington Walls provides an example fo how this information is adding and transforming our understanding of the landscape. This lecture will present this new information and consider the larger value of such work
