Students explore ancient civilisations

Recently, Block 4 BAC Ancient Civilizations students went on a memorable visit to the area of Avebury. The first stop was Avebury Stone Circle. A tour guide showed us the circles of the henge. He was very experienced and told us how they were built; however he seemed to be convinced that it was aliens that could have built the impressive site! Our penultimate stop was at Silbury Hill and West Kennet Long Barrow, where we explored the tomb. We also looked up Silbury Hill, but didn’t dare climb it. Lastly we stopped at Stonehenge, which is what everyone had been looking forward to. We toured around the stone circle but sadly we had to stick to the path and were not allowed to touch the stones or to enter into the middle of the henge, however it was still amazing seeing it in real life and I think it was the highlight of everybody’s day.
