Dirk Van Tuerenhout is the Curator of Anthropology for the Houston Museum of Natural Science. Their new exhibit Stonehenge: Ancient Mysteries and Modern Discoveries presents over 200 artifacts from Great Britain, most of which have never left the Isles. There is also a massive touchscreen table where visitors can do their own research. The stones which are over 5000 years old, are still a mystery. Dirk explores some of the possible explanations for its existence by discussing what we do know and modern science is allowing us to know more than ever. But it still doesn't answer the 2 biggest questions: what was it and how was it built?
