Great Neolithic Monuments of the North

A packed village hall listened attentively to a fascinating talk by Colin Richards in which he explored the differences between stone circles, henge monuments and passage graves in northern Britain and Ireland around the fourth millennium.  He proposed an interesting theory of wrapping to explain the development of a number of these sites.  You can read more detail about this talk, by visiting Talk 161014
