Good stuff even 2 years after its release

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've watched a ton of documentaries on Stonehenge, and this box set contains the first one I've seen that almost gets it right - "The Secret of Stonehenge." The episode delves into the history of moon worship (sadly, but forgiveably, without touching on the ancient lunar calendars of the ice age), which occured before the sun worship that characterized the era of Stonehenge's final construction. It even speculates on the meaning of henge symbols throughout Northern Europe by comparing these symbols to the more-ancient, trance-induced art of the San Bushmen in South Africa (they do miss that the spirals on Stonehenge, Mase Howe, etc. are directly related to measurements of the sun shadows between equinoxes. But the rest is still intriguing). They even speculate on the specific nature of ancient stonehenge rituals by comparing it to the rituals still performed to this day at the Stonehenge located in Madagascar.

Another noteable episode is "Tracking the First Americans," which identifies the recent excavation of 50,000 year old Aborigine cave art and human remains in Brazil. Astounding archeological proof that that were the first humans to make it to the Americas by sea thousands of years before the first would-be Native Americans made it by means of the land bridge.

I've yet to watch the last disc of episodes, but these two episodes alone have made the set worthy of my purchase.
