New stonehenge article gives a good insight into how important science is to the study of prehistory.

This BBC article explains how archaeologists  have worked out the location of the tomb for the original builders of Stonehenge (in Wales).

Professor Wainwright  comments “It can be compared directly with the first Stonehenge, so for the first time we have a direct link between Carn Menyn – where the bluestones came from – and Stonehenge, in the form of this ceremonial monument.”

It is perhaps most noteworthy to us in that it reflects the growth over recent yeasr in the use of  use scientific method in the study of pre-History.
