When was Stonehenge built? Who built it? How was it built? Why was it built? Answers cannot be promised to all of these, but we can get better at asking the questions and work towards solutions. We can look at how people have responded to Stonehenge. Most of all we can begin to think about what Stonehenge means to us.

What do I learn?

  • To understand present archaeological thinking about Stonehenge.
  • To evaluate responses to Stonehenge in art, literature, music, architecture and culture.
  • To consider your own response to Stonehenge, expressed through two peer-evaluated mini-essays.

by Ken Sellers completed this course, spending 1 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be very easy.
After fully completing this class, I think the truth is that there isn't enough known about Stonehenge to have a class on just Stonehenge. For my tastes, there was way too much "what do YOU think?" regarding any given question. Who cares what I think? Give me the facts please!
