We distribute a title about Stonehenge, called "Set in Stone," which may be
of interest to you. It was an award-winner at the National Educational Film
Festival and it was selected for screenings by the World Archaeological
Congress and the American Anthropological Assn. A description of it follows:

Set in Stone

Stonehenge is one of the world's most famous cultural icons as well as one
of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe. This penetrating
documentary explores the international controversy over physical access to
the Stonehenge site. Balancing the increasing demand for access to the past
with the need for preserving such an environmentally and archaeologically
sensitive site has proven to be a complex and difficult task for British
authorities. Archaeologists, advertisers, modern-day druids, and more than
10,000 tourists each day are battling over access to Stonehenge, even as it
continues to deteriorate owing to environmental stresses and pollution.
This is a unique and insightful case study of a problem facing most of the
world's major cultural monuments and archaeological sites. It was produced
by Linda Zimmerman.

"A vivid, engaging, and richly discussible video that will be a unique
resource for a variety of courses at both the undergraduate and graduate
levels. It provides a rare close-up look at Stonehenge itself as well as
remarkable and dramatic footage of religious and political groups seeking
claim, at times violently, to the monument's symbolic significance. The
film engages students with interpretive issues that are foundational for a
wide range of courses, including anthropology, history, popular culture,
cultural studies, and interpretive theory." - Prof. Helen Brooks,
Humanities Special Programs, Stanford University
