Synopsis

Solving the Mysteries of Stonehenge by Leon Gray

Stonehenge is one of the world's most famous sites where ancient history can still be explored today. This ancient monument has puzzled and fascinated archaeologists and historians for hundreds of years because no one knows for sure what it was actually built for! Stone Age Britain was a place where many different tribes of people lived and many theories suggest that Stonehenge was a place used for ceremonies and rituals. Solving the Mysteries of Stonehenge explores this amazing ruin and looks in detail at other famous henges such as one of the largest ones in Europe at Avebury and the stone circles at Carnac in France. With Stonehenge as a background, the book fills in the details of how we think the people who lived there at the time built and used this amazing stone circle. It also explains how some of the archaeological discoveries were uncovered, which have helped to piece together our understanding of this fascinating place. This series investigates some of the most well-known sites of past civilisations. Shows archaeologists as detectives of the past and how they work to solve mysteries of ancient cultures and civilisations by literally 'Digging Into History'. A brilliant series for young history buffs and any child interested in archaeology.
