Our friends at Viking are offering you the chance to win one of five pairs of tickets to attend the World of Stonehenge Exhibition at the British Museum from 17 February to 17 July 2022. Find out more about Neolithic man and his relationship to this extraordinary stone circle through artefacts from around Europe.
The Nebra Sky Disc, for example, is the world’s oldest surviving map of the stars, perhaps over 3,500 years old, and it depicts the moon, stars and planets in gold on a metal ‘plate’.
The exhibition links together the objects on display with the latest scientific and archaeological knowledge about Stonehenge. This is a great precursor to a visit to the actual stones in Wiltshire and brilliant for anyone, young or old, who is interested in ancient history.
An introduction to Stonehenge is a great start too and an ideal read before you go to the exhibition.
