Standing with Stones

We were casting around for something to watch the other day and hit upon a really excellent 2-hour documentary about British prehistoric sites. Standing With Stones was self-funded twelve years ago by a pair of non-archaeologists. It took them two years of driving around Britain.

Very well written and presented: no woo or aliens. A little speculation, but sensible. I shan’t spoil it for you, but I had no idea there were a thousand stone circles in Britain.

Their whole channel is worth a look: The Prehistory Guys. Also, their Patreon.

I love British prehistory, but it’s ultimately frustrating because we will never know enough about it. Still, modern techniques like ground-penetrating whotsit are uncovering all sorts of interesting new information. Go watch it!
