Mary-Ann Craig talks to Jon about the history behind the Solstice at Stonehenge and other sites, including Newgrange in Ireland, Maeshowe in Orkney and Irthlingborough in Northamptonshire. She discusses the finds from excavations at Irthlingborough, including a lattice of cattle bones which had formed a lacework around the mound, and also goes into detail about the life of the legendary Amesbury Archer - who he was, the stature he held and why he wasn't the all action hero he was made out to be.
