Prehistoric England A-Z

I love these prehistoric sites. There's just something so mysterious and intriguing about them. Please don't visit Britain without seeing at least one, and see if you can stay til sunset! You won't forget the experience. What's the difference between a causewayed camp and a hill fort, anyway? When were those blasted stone circles built, and why? For some answers to these pressing questions, visit the prehistoric monuments page in our History section.
