The exhibition explores Britain’s roller coaster relationship with Europe.
An exhibition called Making Connections: Stonehenge in its Prehistoric World opens today (Friday 12th October).
It showcases among some of the most prized objects in the British Museums’ collection of ancient Britain and Europe.
English Heritage and the British Museum have come together to stage the exhibition which examines the shifting relationship between the British Isles and mainland Europe during the Neolithic and Bronze Ages.
Among some of the artifacts on display include three chalk cylinders from around 3000BC found with the burial of a child in North Yorkshire, a gold neckpiece made around 4000 years ago, and a 6,500 year old jade axe.
Making Connections: Stonehenge in its Prehistoric World opens on 12 October and runs until 21st April 2019.
It’s among a number of events English Heritage is holding to mark 100 years since local couple Cecil and Mary Chubb gifted the monument to the nation.
