IT’S one of the world’s most iconic prehistoric monuments.
And every year, Stonehenge attracts visitors from across the world – particularly for the summer and winter solstices.
But for those who don’t fancy standing around in a cold field in Wiltshire at dawn on December 22, an expert from the University of Huddersfield can help.
Dr Rupert Till has helped develop an iPhone app for armchair druids.
Dr Till has created “The Stonehenge Experience” – a downloadable app, which employs advanced digital modelling techniques so that users can see what the site would have looked like in the dark and mysterious days of prehistory.
Users of the app can navigate interactively around Stonehenge and explore it without seeing any latter-day fences or paths – or crowds of tourists.
It is possible to “fly” over the top of the site, or zoom towards it and see how Stonehenge developed over the years, and how different arrangements of the stones were set up.
