The Stonehenge Riverside Project

The Stonehenge Riverside Project

International research seminar 5th-6th November 2009 at University of Gothenburg, Department of Historical Studies.
Place: the Great Hall in the Vasapark University building.

Organized jointly with: Forging Identities EU project and the Danish PhD school. With support from The Royal Swedish Academy of History and Letters. Open for all interested.


The Stonehenge Riverside Project has revolutionized our knowledge and
understanding of Stonehenge and its context within the European Neolithic. Not only has the project discovered a large Neolithic settlement at the nearby henge enclosure of Durrington Walls but it has also developed new chronologies for Stonehenge and its surrounding monuments, including those which were hitherto undated and unknown. The project has applied a range of theoretical perspectives as well as a battery of scientific techniques, challenging and overturning previous interpretations of this iconic monument and its landscape.

The five directors of the SRP will present a day-long seminar on different
aspects of the project: the landscape prior to Stonehenge, the relationship of Stonehenge to its population, the working of its stones, the timber architecture, the landscape of Stonehenge, and the results of geophysical surveys. The seminar will be followed the next day by a series of presentations, exploring wider issues of the Early Neolithic in Britain, megalithic stone circles and landscapes, and migration and mobility at the time of Stonehenge.
