New Research Project Planned for Stonehenge

A group of scientists has recommended that a new, comprehensive research project be launched to study Stonehenge. In Stonehenge: an Archaeological Research Framework, edited by Timothy Darvill of Bournemouth University, a plan is suggested to study the structure and its burial sites.

David Miles, chief archaeology advisor to English Heritage, feels that much of the current research is based on false information derived from 19th and 20th century reports when the site was first excavated. New research would use updated methods to study the area, especially the barrow graves.
