Stories of Stone: Dreaming the Prehistoric in the Middle Ages

This project studies two forms of human encounter with stone in the Middle Ages: as a primordial natural substance that provokes wonderment about how the world’s materiality works; and as a seemingly timeless element in architectures that have long outlived their builders (e.g., Stonehenge and Neolithic graves). Stone invited medieval writers to think innovatively about time, materiality, the power of art, and the persistence of history.
