Among this years Antiquity awards is the Ben Cullen prize and this years the winners are Tim Darvill, Peter Marshall, Mike Parker Pearson and Geoff Wainwright for their paper “Stonehenge Remodelled”. The paper traces the history of the archaeological interpretation of the monument and a number of the recent revisions which in part have been the result of both significant technological advances and analytical techniques.
The authors conclude that over a period of around 1,500 years Stonehenge underwent a number of structural changes of varying size and impact. They are also certain that this is not the end of our attempts to understand Stonehenge, just the latest episode in a long-running story that fascinates most us.
