In spring 1998 a circle of prehistoric timbers, exposed by the receding tide, was found projecting from the sands at Holme-next-the-Sea in Norfolk, England. The site came to be known as Seahenge, and is a unique early Bronze Age timber circle with an upside-down oak tree stump at its centre.
Excavating the site proved to be hugely controversial - many people believed it only made sense in context, others felt that an ancient religious site should not be disturbed.
We will be discussing why 50 bits of muddy old wood stirred so many people to express strong feelings about the early Bronze Age, about archaeology, and about the preservation of ancient remains.
