Hi everyone, here are three Non-Fiction DVD recommendations for the week.
Secrets of the Dead: After Stonehenge:
Description: Secrets of the Dead: After Stonehenge follows a team of archaeologists, scientists, historians and specialists, as they shed new light on the ancient history of the western world. Perfectly preserved in mud, the prehistoric British Bronze Age Village – built at least one thousand years after Stonehenge – has been called the “British Pompeii.”
“The Pompeii analogy: it’s as if we’ve got a pristine settlement,” says Mark Knight, site director, Cambridge Archaeological Unit. “A pristine image of exactly what was going on within a settlement 3,000 years ago.”
Because the site is so delicate, the experts have been working in secret inside the quarry. But now they are rushing to complete their work and map the site before the land is returned for its owner’s use.
Have their findings forever changed what we know about life in Bronze Age Britain? What revelations about the villager’s lives can be gleaned from the cache of finds, unprecedented in number and quality, emerging from the marshy Fens?
“This is the crown jewels in terms of what it will tell us about past humanities and the way that people lived in this landscape 3,000 years ago,” says Knight after taking stock of the extraordinary findings. Has this English settlement rewritten Western history? — PBS
