Ian Kuijt, my archaeologist friend and colleague here at Notre Dame, pointed out this You Tube clip of the comic Eddie Izzard taking on Stonehenge. Very funny!
For those of you wanting to know more about the actual site, here’s the Wikipedia Stonehenge link. Britannia also has some good short coverage that focuses on the construction of the henge.
Eternal Idol discusses recent claims that Stonehenge was a site of religious healing, while remote central covers the emerging evidence that Stonehenge was used as a burial site. And for some actual digging, see the Stonehenge Riverside Project.
