Stonehenge Online Course at iversity Platform

Deadline: 21 January, 2015
Open to: everyone; the MOOC is open to all, especially those with interest in History
Venue: online


The most spectacular monument of the Neolithic is now a British icon and a World Heritage Site. Explore 5,000 years of Stonehenge and discover your own response to this enigmatic stone circle.

When was Stonehenge built? Who built it? How was it built? Why was it built? Answers cannot be promised to all of these, but we can get better at asking the questions and work towards solutions. We can look at how people have responded to Stonehenge. Most of all we can begin to think about what Stonehenge means to us.

You will learn:

  • To understand present archaeological thinking about Stonehenge;
  • To evaluate responses to Stonehenge in art, literature, music, architecture and culture;
  • To consider your own response to Stonehenge, expressed through two peer-evaluated mini-essays.


There are no entry requirements. This MOOC is open to all.
