Venue: Moylegrove Old School Hall, Moylegrove
Activity: Mike Parker Pearson: Rhosyfelin and the Stonehenge bluestones
When: One-off event 19:30 - 22:00 on 18th Sept 2013
How did the bluestone megaliths of Stonehenge get to Salisbury Plain? Were they moved from the Preseli Hills by human agency or by a glacier?
Professor Mike Parker Pearson, an archaeologist from University College London, is leading a collaborative project involving universities from across the UK in looking at the connection between Preseli and Stonehenge. Their work brings them back this year in search of the quarries and sites that may be the start of the longest journey for megaliths anywhere in prehistoric Europe.
