Abstract:

Neil Oliver goes in search of the very first stirrings of religion in Britain. In the south of England and on the Scottish borders, great tombs provide evidence of ancestor worship among the first farmers of the Neolithic era, and an extraordinary discovery in Herefordshire reveals what really lies beneath their burial mounds. In the flint mines of Grimes Graves in Norfolk, Neil discovers how Stone Age miners carried their religion deep underground. Finally, in the Avebury Henge and monuments of Orkney, he discovers how a new age of belief swept away the old religions and changed Britain forever.
