History comes to life at Stonehenge

henge footage_JPG-pwrt2English Heritage have launched their new first world war exhibition at the Stonehenge Visitor Centre with spectacular projections of soldiers marching in the landscape. Stonehenge stood at the heart of the world’s largest military training ground during the war, with hundreds of thousands of men travelling from across the Commonwealth to prepare for battle.

Footage of British soldiers preparing for ‘the big push’ in 1917 was being projected onto the stones on the 3rd and the 4th of November. The projection was followed by a rendition of the ‘Last Post’ played by a bugler from the Royal Regiment Fusiliers, and a two minute silence across the World Heritage site.
