Human Henge is run by the Restoration Trust in partnership with Richmond Fellowship, English Heritage, the National Trust and Bournemouth University and supported by Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust. It was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Wiltshire County Council and English Heritage. The aim of the project was to enhance mental wellbeing of participants through activity and exploration in the prehistoric landscape. This was achieved through a facilitated programme of participant-led activities coupled with experts, carers, support workers, and contributors from a range of cultures who together explored prehistoric landscapes in the Stonehenge and Avebury World Heritage Site. This report builds upon the first report shared in June 2017 (Darvill & Heaslip 2017). The research question that framed the project was: “Does a creative exploration of historic landscape achieve sustained, measurable mental health and wellbeing outcomes for people with mental health conditions?” Answering this was achieved through two parallel investigations. First, a study of available literature and published case studies was collated and published as a chapter in the volume A handbook of well-being edited by Kate Galvin (Darvill et al. 2018). Second, the focus of this report, was an evaluation of the impact of the Human Henge project on the mental well-being of its participants.
