Abstract:

Archaeologists can tell us when and how this great monument was built, but not what it was supposed to be, or do: an Arthurian Round Table? a megalithic computer? Its literary interest lies in its roots, which it shares with many of the strands in the Arthurian romances, the tales of Chaucer, and the Celtic strains in Shakespeare. This program looks at Stonehenge's history and legend and at the fascination it still holds today.
