I was a bit disappointed with it. I thought there'd be more proof of physical differences, like shape of skull from caveman to present day, physique etc. I know the lives are totally different, diets, etc. but not a lot of new information was given, if any.

Kozmik,

I agree with you. As I said above, I expected a lot more from it.

I thought the first two were good, but after that slowed down. Too much time was spent watching people walking/travelling. IMO

You can`t trust the BBC can you. I select which Horizon progs to sit through now, this one was always going to be a bad one (I read this first and decided to give it a miss) and so will next weeks. The space/solar system ones are usually worth watching as are the AGW/climate ones but even then we have to read between the lines.

Brian Cox new series starts on Sunday.

Welcome to this edition of the Megalithic Portal News Summary.

Roman Ridge (Rotherham)
Subject: Megaliths in England
Iron Age Earthwork in South Yorkshire. Linear earthwork extending for a distance of 10 miles in total, thought to be Iron Age in date, possibly a boundary.
Note: Prehistoric earthwork in Rotherham to be rescued from mountain bike damage

Isbister: Tomb Of The Eagles
Subject: Megaliths in Scotland
Chambered Cairn in Orkney. This is also one of those archaeological sites that we would not have in all their glory if it had not been for the enterprising curiosity of a native Orcadian, in this case Ronald Simison.
Note: 16 of the 85 skulls show evidence of 'trauma', see latest comment for details

2011 Megalithomania Events: May in Glastonbury, March in South Africa
Subject: Events
Hugh Newman writes: This will be our sixth conference where a bunch of standing-stoners describe differing elements of their strange but compelling addiction – the big stones of antiquity. Again, for 2011, we have gone global, because more and more fascinating sites are being discovered, not just by archaeologists but by antiquarians like you and I.
Note: Watch the whole Megalithomania South Africa event online with live streaming, 12/13th March - see the lineup and latest news on this page

Megalithic Portal 10th Anniversary Ancient Site Hunt, Berkshire, Sun 20th March
Subject: Events
The Megalithic Portal is 10 years old this month and we will be holding several events this year to celebrate our 10th birthday. We are planning a big event in Derbyshire, more news very soon and keep the 30th of July free if you'd like to come. However our first event is an ancient site hunt in Berkshire, centered to the south of Reading, where we will be trying to track down as many obscure sites as as possible, then turning the sites from green to red on our maps by adding photos and other information.

Boskednan stone circle
Subject: Megaliths in England
Stone Circle in Cornwall. Also known as the Nine Maidens, this circle is mostly in ruins, although its isolation on desolate moorland make it very attractive. There were probably twenty-two stones making up the original circle, but only six are still erect, and most of those in the north are missing. They average about 1.2m ( 4 feet) in height, although the broken one at the north was over six feet when it was standing.
Note: 'Virtual Merlin' transports Nine Maidens to Drogheda with digital art installation

Chankillo - 13 Towers
Subject: South America
Sighting Towers in Ancash State, Peru. The Thirteen Towers of Chankillo were built along a natural ridgeline southeast of the hilltop structure of the Chankillo "Fortress." Recently the towers have been found to mark an alignment with observation point in a Temple at the foot of the ridge and the rising sun, at points throughout the solar year. Buried caches of offerings around this observation point confirm its importance and use.
Note: Professor Brian Cox visits this giant desert solar calendar in Peru as part of Wonders of the Universe, starting on BBC Two tonight, video and photos are linked.

Green Hill - Stall Moor
Subject: Megaliths in England
This Stone Row is part of the longest stone row in Britain, and this entry refers to the northern part of the row. It is considered by some that the row was originally two rows, the northern and southern ends, which over time became joined together.
Note: Filling in the gaps: - description by TheCaptain, photos from Geograph

Stolpegaard Major
Subject: Megaliths in Scandinavia
Round Barrows in København. Inside an garden of a public institution, apparently public access is tolerated. There are two mounds here, an almost perfect one with a circle path to the top (sneglegang), this could be called Major, and a small and almost destroyed mound which could be called Minor.
http://www.megalithic.co.uk/article.php?sid=28703

Upward Sun River Mouth
Subject: North America
Ancient Settlement in Alaska.Four different occupations, dating from 8880 to roughly 11300 (radio carbon years before the present,) are buried within a sand dune at the junction of the Tanana and Little Delta rivers in central Alaska. Two of the occupations include hearth sites, but the most intriguing may be from approximately 11,400 years ago, where a house was dug into the ground, and a hearth contains the evidence of how the people there lived and died.
Note: Cremation site hints at how first Americans lived—and where they came from.

Skomer Stone
Subject: Megaliths in Wales
This stone is not on the map so may be modern, but there are no less than four ancient settlements on this tiny island with numerous hut circles. RSPB reserve with access by launch from Martins Haven.
Note: Royal Commission investigators Toby Driver and Louise Barker look at a well preserved prehistoric settlement on Skomer and speculate about the use of the standing stone as a navigation marker
http://www.megalithic.co.uk/article.php?sid=7390

Coomnahorna
Subject: Megaliths in Rep. of Ireland
A pair of standing stones in Co. Kerry. Originally a row of four stones, of which two have fallen.
Note: Neil discussed copper and trade routes in depth in Episode Four of the BBC's History of Ancient Britain programme. Some think that pairs of standing stones in Co Kerry and Cork marked routes to show the early metal merchants the way to sources of copper, gold and tin. Read more here and see Andy B's log of sites visited in the whole series.

Hardwell Camp
Subject: Megaliths in England
Hardwell Camp is an Iron Age hillfort located on a promontory SE from Compton Beauchamp. The earthwork is in reasonable condition with visible ramparts and ditches. From the Western and Eastern side the hillfort is protected by natural ravines, while the earthwork is particularly strong from the South. The site has never been excavated.
