Project Stonehenge

Project Stonehenge is a growing exhibition led by the English Heritage organization to teach and visualize life during Stonehenge and the Stone Age.

With the popularity of Stonehenge growing annually, and continued research by archaeologists excavating the monumental area, showcases Stonehenge in a new light is essential. These experiences highlight the best of the Stone Age in England and how it has carried through into modern times.

Maintaining A Landscape of the Stone Age

Most of the area of Stonehenge is showcased by ancient landscaping of the property, with minimal areas scape and cut. Wildflowers and other natural plant life fill the fields. Walkways and other areas are cut for the safety of visitors, but the general landscaping is natural. and can be enjoyed through the walkways from the visitor center or on the bus shuttle.


Museum Access

Two museums are found near the monument and have historical artifacts from Stonehenge and the Stone Age era. These museums are the Salisbury Museum and the Wiltshire Museum. The goal of both of these places is to elevate the Stonehenge experience of visitors and take them back into time.  Visit either of these locations for extensive knowledge of Stonehenge and the people who lived during this time period. Golden artifacts and other excavated items from various archaeologists call them museums home. Some of these artifacts are available for public visitors to hold and experience as a hands-on approach. These artifacts also showcase how Stonehenge has impacted local history and the area throughout the years.


Visitors can also experience season changes through Stonehenge through a standing stone room that is digitized, allowing visitors to experience the solstices at any point of the day. This experience allows visitors to view Stonehenge as those in its beginning did when the monument was at full construction and the sun and moon peered through the rocks. These experiences showcase how English history has shifted over time, and how they have impacted present history today.

Neolithic Houses

Archaeologists have been studying the Stone Age for some tme, and nearby dwellings have been found from the Neolithic Age. Because of this, historians and the Stonehenge Project have been able to bring these homes back to life. Replicas of neolithic homes are available for visitors to experience. These homes are replicated based on artifacts and what archaeologists believe to be the homes occupied during this time. In these dwellings are the historians explaining the different ways the homes were built, and what was used to build them. Experience a different life and experience how to do different techniques like basket weaving and grain grinding.

All of these different experience combined add to the experience of visiting the Stonehenge monument. Now visitors not only have the ability to tour the monument and experience folklore on a bus ride, but they can see what life was like during those times by taking a step back in history. The museums, the Neolithic house replicas, and the Stone Age atmosphere allow visitors to take a step back in time and experience life in Stonehenge.
