“The Backbone of Prehistoric Britain” tour, led by “Standing With Stones” filmmakers Michael Bott and Rupert Soskin, in the period September 7-20, 2019, takes us all the way from the Orkney Islands off the northern tip of Scotland down to Stonehenge. Designed especially for Archaeological Legacy Institute, this tour has many highlights. The Orkneys visit includes Skara Brae, Europe’s most complete Neolithic village and Maes Howe, one of Britain’s most majestic passage graves. In the Lake District, we’ll see the stone circles of Long Meg and Her Daughters, the sixth-largest in Britain, and Castlerigg, whose majestic beauty inspired Romantic poets. We’ll spend a couple of nights in Stratford-Upon-Avon, Shakespeare’s home, along the way stopping at Arbor Low, one of the best preserved henge circle monuments in Britain. We’ll see Silbury Hill, the largest man-made mound in Europe, and Avebury, Britain’s largest stone circle. And we’ll tour the remarkable cultural landscape of the Salisbury Plain and take in a sunrise visit to Stonehenge within the stones.

For this tour, we have a 17-person limit and a registration deadline of June 7. Five spots are taken. We expect more people to get on board soon, so register now, while there is still time to reserve a spot!

Our tour program (archaeologychannel.org/tours) is set apart from others by our commitment to storytelling and expert guidance. We believe that a tour should be far more than a photo-op or checking off a bucket list. And we like to design unique tours not offered by others.
