Place of Publication: London and BournemouthAbstract:
Stonehenge is one of Europe’s most eminent prehistoric monuments, a fact recognized in 1986 when the site and its surrounding landscape was inscribed on the World Heritage List. Since that time, much effort has been given to improving the conservation, management, and presentation of Stonehenge and its environs. Research has also played an important role with several extensive surveys and selective excavations helping to improve understandings of the site and its setting. But how does all the archaeological work carried out over the last century or so fit together? And what should we do next? This volume sets out to provide an overview of achievements and a framework for future research at and around Stonehenge.
