Secrets of the Stonehenge Skeletons (1 x 60′) – Documentary that reveals the results of scientific analysis the ancient remains of 63 bodies buried at Stonehenge. This latest investigation is a continuation of a research project conducted by Professor Mike Parker Pearson in 2008 when he carried out radiocarbon tests on only three sets of cremated remains.
For centuries scientists and historians have argued over the meaning and purpose of Stonehenge. Now the research team believes it has finally solved many of the mysteries surrounding the UK’s greatest prehistoric monument, overturning the accepted view on what happened when Stonehenge was built, and what it was built for.
