Hello there,

I found another Google Earth history gem that might prove to be a useful tool for an afternoon lesson or at least something different to engage a class in UK local and ancient history.

A team of archeologists and web developers from various UK universities have put together a virtual tour of Stonehenge and the surrounding area with soundbites and pop-ups by archeologists involved in the Stonehenge Riverside dig project.

The application uses Google Earth to let you move around the landscape and find out more about recent discoveries. Not a bad teaching tool I think! Though you need to have Google Earth installed to get the application to work alongside it mind, but still very interesting.

Here's the link to the site:

The application adds layers/a folder into Google Earth that you then click on. There's a "how-to" on the website too.

Rather good methinks!
