Anyone who has visited Stonehenge, the best known of the neolithic monuments in Britain, can relate to the feeling of ancient mystery invoked by these imposing monoliths. There are many other sites in Britain where you can find other standing stones. What were they? Who built them? Why were they built? Lesley will take you on a journey back 5000 years to give an archaeological insight into the Callanish stones of the Isle of Lewis, the Ring of Brodgar in the Orkneys and the Newgrange Passage tomb near Dublin.
