Overview: Megaliths, or large stone structures like those found in Stonehenge, have always interested modern man. Only in recent years have we discovered that they are really very complex geometric structures that not only served as tombs and for rituals, but also are accurate astronomical calendars that can predict the seasons and even the eclipses of the sun and moon. This unit will allow students to conduct historical research and then use their data to create travel brochures or postcards that will reveal their findings to others.
