Every year, a million visitors are drawn to England to gaze upon the famous circle of stones, but the monument's meaning has continued to elude us.
Now investigations inside and around Stonehenge have kicked off a dramatic new era of discovery and debate over who built Stonehenge and for what purpose.
Six have undergone f MRI brain scans before any knapping and will have additional scans in November and again after the training has finished in September 2012.
The goal is not to try and simulate ancient learning but to have the learners get as good at knapping as they can while we monitor skill acquisition and changes in brain activity.I've done a couple of demos lately and have tried to figure out ways to keep them more interesting during the relatively long thinning and shaping stage without switching midway through to a prepared piece.That's what really struck me about your demo -- when you are ready to start making the point you are already halfway there and the audience was kept interested all the way along.Although students have a set number of courses, labs, etc., there is ample opportunity to explore their own interests.For more information check out the department I am co-author of the book Clovis Technology with Mike Collins and Andy Hemmings.flighty, often forgetting things like the date, people's names, meetings, eating, people's names, etc. Now if you'll excuse me, I must nip on home, as I seem to have forgotten to put on my pants.
