Wilts & Dorset Museums online lecture : Building a new chronology for the Mount Pleasant mega-henge
11 March 2021 @ 7:30 pm
By Susan Greaney, Senior Properties Historian, English Heritage
Located just to the east of Dorchester the enormous and elaborate henge of Mount Pleasant was excavated in 1970-1 by Geoffrey Wainwright. Until recently our understanding of the site has been based on these excavations and the dating that was available at the time. Now a new research project has obtained radiocarbon dates from samples of antler picks, charcoal and human remains which sheds new light on the site.
