It will be followed by a guided tour of Stonehenge and the Stonehenge cursus and will include a specially arranged talk at the site by English Heritage staff on the recent project to laser scan the monument. The excursion will provide a unique insight into the current work that is being carried out and will be led by University of Southampton archaeology staff Dr David Wheatley.
