At this stage of the quest you need to assemble your people and tools.
What are we gathered here for?
I’m not sure... I’ve left my family in the north of the country to join the mission so it had better be good!
You are leading this mission to build a great temple to the sun, ‘Stonehenge’. Buildings of wood may fall or burn, but strong stone will last for centuries.
Who will you take with you on this mission?
You cannot take everyone, so choose the 4 groups of workers that you think will be of most use during your quest.CHOOSE WORKERS
The wheel hasn’t been invented yet so horse and carts are out of the question.
We won’t need farmers to help build Stonehenge, but we might need their help later...
What are druids?
Fantastic leadership skills, you certainly have the skills required to complete this mission.
Total needs to be 360
To dig ditches and holes in the ground
To cut down trees, shape wood and turn plants into ropes
To remove the soil
To shape the huge sarsen stones
Your team and tools have been assembled but this is only the beginning of your mission. A long, dangerous journey awaits.
You will need to find the stones and plan your route.
Look out for these powerful Gifts. Use them carefully and they can help you with your quest.
I hope the mission is a success I want the stones to stand for many generations.
A) the bluestones
B) the sarsen stones
Speckled with markings, some say these stones can heal.
These stones are long lasting and light in colour.
These hexagonal shaped stones are the result of a volcanic eruption.
These grey granite stones are tough and can resist erosion.
You didn’t get that quite right. Revisit the Gifts and have another go.
Hexagonal shaped stones
You successfully located the stones!
You are leading the mission to transport the bluestones and your next task is to plan your route.
Can you avoid the natural obstacles?
Some say we are a medicine and sparkle like the stars
We are hard pale stones, like the bones of our dead relations
Avoid the bog! You don’t want your workers or your stones sinking.
Transporting the stones through forests would be tricky.
Transporting the stones over hills would be hard work.
You’ve already chosen your workers to build Stonehenge.
Who else will you need to take with you to survive the journey?
Choose the four groups of people or animals.CONTINUE
Dogs were around when Stonehenge was built but they won’t be very helpful for survival!
Swords are made from metal which hasn’t been invented. Instead fighters would use bows and arrows..
With you in charge your workers are safe!
The hunters, cooks, rope makers and guards will protect your people and make sure they don’t starve...
You’ve found the stones, planned your route and have your team of workers in place.
How are you going to move those massive bluestones 150 miles, all the way to Salisbury Plain?
You must now attempt the dangerous journey. Look out for these gifts.
How long will we be gone for? My family is waiting for me at home
Only time will tell
ROPE MADE FROM PLANTS
CRANE FOR LIFTING
These are huge stones, not tiny pebbles. Glue won’t help you out here!
Machinery like cranes and diggers haven’t been invented yet.
Wheels don’t exist yet. Your workers will have to manage without...
Magic? You are a mission leader not a wizard. It’s all about the materials you choose!
A fine choice of materials. I hope you can keep this up and successfully build the transport too!
The right materials are longer than they are wide.
The correct materials come from nature.
This kind of boat would have been around then but it’s a bit small for our huge stones! Try again.
Bingo! It’s called the trackway method and this is how the stones were moved over land.
Wheels haven’t been invented yet! Try again
Potatoes and chickens didn’t arrive on these shores until much later.CONTNIUE
You must now attempt to raise the stones.
Will you keep your team safe and prevent the stones from falling? These gifts will help you along the way.
My children are grown up now and we have dedicated our lives to this mission. Let’s hope it’s a success!
Clue: the sun’s rays should shine through the great trilithon
Choose the method that works like our knee and shoulder joints
Party’s over. Everything is in place.
This is the moment of truth...
Will your Stonehenge stand or fall?TIME TO RAISE STONEHENGE
