I could listen to Neil Oliver reading the dictionary.

I like stone too. My house has been standing since 1681, and you dont have to maintain it much.

The speckles in the blue stone used in Stonehenge remind me of the night sky. I wonder if this is why it was used?

Neil: So this is as it was. It was not reconstructed?
George: Oh, no.
Neil: What was it like finding this the first time you came in here?
George: Like this.

I'm a yank who feels fortunate to have visited Stonehenge in December of '77, the final days tourists were were allowed to walk among the stones and touch them.

Wouldn't it have been a pain to wait a whole year so the sun would shine through your doorway only to have it rain?

I just love finding his documentaries on u Tube.. Been watching when going to bed in the U.S... Now ready for Number #4 in this series.. He is Awesome.. He walks all over and you feel and see like your right there. Plus his wife is a lucky gal. His voice is soothing.

I have been to Newgrange and it really is spectacular (even with the modern facing). I do not believe in ghosts or spirits of the dead but there are times when I do think the collective consciousness, or energy if you will, lingers on long after the people themselves are gone. This is one of those places.

I wonder if the axe was smoothed because they realized smooth surfaces are less subject to cracks than a surface with a bunch of stress points.

Wonderful documentary as usual, but..."Unprecedented?" You never heard of Gobekli Tepe in Eastern Turkey, twice as old and twenty times bigger than Stonehenge?

Another fantastic look into the past. The beauty in these areas is magnificent. However, it was sad to see all the trash on the ground from the people who were there. Such a shame that there seemed to be little respect for where they were., but I tend to see this anywhere people gather. Sad.

I believe sometimes they thinking too much into it. Going up to the mountains for tools and tool materials. Its just simple.

Definitely appreciate all of the work that went into these episodes. I would love to see a more open discussion of some of the mysteries though. There are many alternative theories on the megalithic structures like stonehenge which are being found all over the world. It would've been great to connect mainstream archaeology with some more alternative researchers. Just saying it took phenomenal effort to move 50 ton stones 20 miles is an incredible understatement and seems to miss a great opportunity to dig deeper as it were...

They had these Neolithic monument/tombs that greeted the sun through it's doorway once a year (winter solstice) in Ireland, too - Newgrange!.
Stonehenge during winter is veautiful
