There are more crazy idea about Stonehenge than any other place in the world. So what happens when a hardcore skeptic claims to have solved one of the world’s greatest mysteries? And then gets even wilder by claiming that the same thinking also explains Easter Island, the Nazca Lines and lots of other mysterious sites around the world? It’s all to do with the extraordinary methods that non-literate cultures use to memorize the vast amount of rational information on which their survival depends.

Dr. Lynne Kelly is a founding member of the Australian Skeptics. With degrees in Engineering, IT, Education, and a doctorate in Arts, she has published 16 books including The Skeptic's Guide to the Paranormal and  two books based on her PhD research, Knowledge and Power in Prehistoric Societies (Cambridge University Press) and The Memory Code.
