Last year, BBC's Timewatch did a programme on Stonehenge showing evidence the stone circle was an ancient site for healing. Now Channel 4 is doing a Time Team Special called The Secrets of Stonehenge,which has a different theory - that Britain's most famous Neolithic monument was actually a ceremonial site for the remains of the dead, helping the departed pass into the afterlife.
Hosted, as usual, by Tony Robinson, the programme examines the work of archaeologists digging at Stonehenge over six years, culminating in excavations in the inner circle of stones in 2008.
The Secrets of Stonehenge is on Channel 4 on Monday night, June 1, at 9pm.
I'm definitely looking forward to it.
A Time Team book called The "Time Team" Guide to What Happened When is available through Amazon for £14.
