About the Event

In our third and final lecture of the English Heritage lecture series,  archaelogist Susan Greaney, English Heritage's Senior Properties Historian delves into the story of Stonehenge in the 20th century through archival photographs and documents. 

Stonehenge and the story of its wider landscape stretches back thousands of years. From Roman visitors to medieval scholars, and from gentleman antiquarians to modern archaeologists, every generation has been fascinated by this elegant and enigmatic structure.

During the lecture, Dr. Greaney will take us through the story of Stonehenge in the 20th century, including revealing changing approaches to the conservation, preservation and enjoyment of the monument since 1900; and even exploring its journey from private ownership to national ownership now for over 100 years.
