Inspired by Stonehenge
Thu 3rd Jan 2019 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
We explore how the iconic structure of Stonehenge has inspired painters, potters and poets resulting in a diverse catalogue of images and impressions which now grace tea towels in Wiltshire, phone cards in Japan and stamps from Bhutan.
Lecturer: Mr Julian Richards BA FSA
Julian is an archaeologist who ran the Stonehenge Environs Project, a detailed study of Stonehenge and its surrounding landscape. This gave him his first experience of the media, where he contributed parts to programmes about Stonehenge. He was asked to contribute to a TV programme about the construction of Stonehenge. His ideas led eventually to the programmes “Meet the Ancestors” and “Blood of the Vikings”. In addition, he has written books to accompany both series.
