English Heritage looks after 60 prehistoric sites across England, including Stonehenge. I’m Susan Greaney, Senior Properties Historian. Ask me anything!
England’s prehistoric monuments span almost four millennia. Scattered across the English landscape are hundreds of these mysterious sites, from isolated standing stones to massive stone circles, and from burial mounds to multi-ramparted hillforts.
The structures that survive from prehistory might not be what we’d normally think of as architecture, but these buildings still inspire awe today, whether through the mysteries of their meaning, the intricacy or scale of their design, or the ingenuity of their construction. From these monuments we can discover what prehistoric daily life may have looked like, what people believed and the technologies they would have used.
English Heritage is a charity that cares for over 400 historic places in England. We look after nearly 60 prehistoric sites across England, from world-famous Stonehenge and Avebury to isolated standing stones and mysterious fogous.
