Don't Assume Anyone Knows All the Facts About Stonehenge
2 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There's little that can be said that won't contain Spoilers, since so much misinformation has preceded this now incredibly researched and authenticated documentary. While it's true that little more can be absolutely certified, other than the gross time frame during which this intriguing artistic and religious-based creation was completed (c.2500 BC), the facts are still coming in relative to the design and purpose for the many structures now having been unearthed. One grouping of those investigated most is a near-twin of the original circular workings, only these being made of wood timbers in a similar design, yet having a different reason for celebration within the same year, but at a very different time, even a different solstice. Professor (of Anthropology) Mike Parker Pearson has done a masterful, if time-consuming task of demonstrating various pathways and points of gathering, for very different purposes, including the huge city within which the great number of laborers and artisans lived while creating this most investigated grouping of stonework -- made with Saracen (sp?) stones, thought to be the hardest granite-like rocks.

This 92-minute documentary is time well spent by those who can become invested in and with these marvelously hard-working, deeply religious folk, through their joyful suffering to complete something not only significantly meaningful to them, but intriguing, if mesmerizing, to us, who so often have been seen to shy away from our own form of worship, simply because of inclement weather. Please take the time here, your rewards will be meaningful.
