The World of Stonehenge review

Currently on in the British Museum, up until 17 July 2022 is The World of Stonehenge exhibit.

Upon entering you are greeted with a graphic showing a number of henge’s, and how many there are in the UK, which is a hell of a lot. Next you will see a large necklace plate crafted out of gold, being as it’s gold, it looks like it was made yesterday. 

There is a wealth of information to soak-up, and a lot of axe heads. All different types of axe heads, different stones, then onto metals. That aspect alone is an exhibit on its own. 

The craft of the age, makes you wonder, how did they manage to do that! There are items on display which leaves you with questions, as no expert is sure what they were for. Exquisite detailed objects, geometric shapes, probably inspired by elements of what the people of the day saw in the landscape and produced onto their wares.

As I got to the bottom of the room I had already been there for an hour and a half so I skipped some cases and the exhibit seemed to rush through time again on the evolution of war and weaponry. 

I wouldn’t mind visiting this exhibit again for a second look another time.

5 out of 5.
