New exhibition center at Stonehenge

Just in time for winter solstice celebrations, a new exhibition and visitors’ center opens today 1.5 miles from Stonehenge. Over 250 objects from the Stonehenge era will be on display, including a reconstructed face of a Neolithic man like Gwyr in The Stonehenge Scrolls. A 360-degree virtual “stand in the stones” film lets visitors experience the solstices at Stonehenge.

There’s more to come. In January English Heritage will begin building a village of Neolithic houses, set to open Easter 2014. Can’t wait to visit, but after February 1, advance booking is recommended.
