Just saw this on the History of Ancient Britain site. Apologies if it's been posted before but couldn't be arsed to go through all the posts.

It says there is going to be a second series next year so you'd assume that most of this series' remaining programmes and a fair few of the next will focus on the neolithic and bronze age assuming they cover up to the end of the iron age.

The locations seem pretty good tonight and next weeks episode looks good.

Age Of Comsomology

"Neil Oliver continues his journey through the world of Ancient Britain as he encounters an age of cosmological priests and some of the greatest monuments of the Stone Age, including Stonehenge itself. This is a time of elite travellers, who were inventing the very idea of Heaven itself."

Yes, next week's episode looks very good (Stonehenge/solstice).

Really enjoyed tonight's episode though:
The onset of the neolithic settlers - farming. Coldrum tomb in Kent.
Ceide Fields in West Ireland - fantastic. Neil looking very wet as he dug down into the peat to uncover a wall 5,500 years old.
Crickley Hill and flint arrowheads.
And Best Of All - West Kennet Kennet Long Barrow (with skylarks) and Windmill Hill.

Wonderful programme - went far to fast (and Arsenal managed to make a come-back while it was on, horray)
