Stonehenge: Making Sense of a Prehistoric Mystery (bookcover)

Stonehenge: Making sense of a prehistoric mystery has been ‘highly commended’ at this year’s British Archaeological Awards.

Stonehenge: Making sense of a prehistoric mystery by Mike Parker Pearson with Joshua Pollard, Colin Richards, Julian Thomas, Kate Welham, Peter Dunn, Adam Stanford, Irene de Luis and Catrina Appleby was recognised by the judges for 'increasing our understanding of the past and introducing it to new audiences'.

The volume, which is published by the Council for British Archaeology in their Archaeology for All series, presents an up-to-date interpretation of Stonehenge and its landscape.

The British Archaeological Awards take place every two years to recognise excellence and innovation in archaeology.

The results of the 2016 British Archaeological Awards were announced at a ceremony at the British Museum in London on 11 July which also marked the launch of the annual Festival of Archaeology with over 1000 events, on offer to the public, across the UK from 16-31 July.
