Stonehenge brings record-setting year to Austria's Mamuz Museum

The Mamuz Museum experienced a record-setting year 2016 with more than 80.000 visitors to their “Stonehenge – A Hidden Landscape” exhibition - a collaboration with the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Archaeological Prospection and Virtual Archaeology.

The latest findings of the Stonehenge Hidden Landscape Project were brought to light by the team of researchers from the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Archaeological Prospection and Virtual Archaeology (LBI ArchPro) and the University of Birmingham. Co-director of the research project and Scientist of the Year 2015, Wolfgang Neubauer, had been curating the exhibition: “With geomagnetic prospection and ground-penetrating radar measurements, an underground area of more than 14 km² around the stone circle was examined. This led to new discoveries which again help us understand the cult landscape around Stonehenge.

In 2016 these sensational results were presented to the public for the first time in a fascinating exhibition at MAMUZ Museum in Mistelbach. Working alongside the exhibition team was one of the renowned researchers in connection with Stonehenge, Julian Richards (Archaemedia).
