In a fascinating new documentary, historian Dan Snow takes viewers on a journey to uncover the mysteries of Stonehenge. Airing on Sunday, March 31, 2024 at 9.00pm on Channel 5, this episode explores the recent discoveries that are helping to reveal the secrets of this iconic monument.

Stonehenge, a prehistoric megalithic wonder, has long been shrouded in speculation and folklore, its purpose and origin eluding researchers for centuries. Dan Snow travels to Wiltshire, where the awe-inspiring stone circle stands, to delve into the latest archaeological findings that are bringing us closer to understanding this ancient wonder.

During the episode, Snow visits the Wiltshire Museum in Devizes, where he examines the Bush Barrow Chieftain and his gold lozenge, discovered in 1808. He also collaborates with Fabio Parracho Silva, a skyscape archaeologist from Bournemouth University, to measure the astronomical alignments of Stonehenge, shedding light on its connection with the cosmos.

What makes this episode even more intriguing is Snow’s attempt to solve the enigma of how the giant stones were sourced and transported to the site. He follows the trail of these massive rocks, which originated in the Marlborough Downs, 25km away, and explores the incredible engineering feats of our Stone Age ancestors who managed to position them so precisely.
