Ancient calendar? Temple? Practical joke? Stonehenge has mystified and delighted us for thousands of years, but hasn't yielded its secrets, like how 40-ton stones found their way over 20 miles to positions which predict celestial events. Nova's Secrets of Lost Empires: Stonehenge, part of the Secrets of Lost Empires series, follows an archaeologist, an engineer, and a stonemason as they attempt to answer a few questions about its construction by building a smaller-scale version using only the technology of ancient Britain. It's not easy for them--muscles plus ingenuity can accomplish a lot, but it's still hard work--but they do learn much about old-time engineering along the way. Whether you're interested in ancient mysteries or you'd just like to see how our ancestors realized their dreams, Secrets of Lost Empires: Stonehenge is for you. --Rob Lightner
