Celebrating the South's prehistoric landscapes
Ridgeway is Britain's oldest road, running for 85 miles through Oxfordshire, Wiltshire,
Berkshire and Buckinghamshire. It extends from Ivinghoe Beacon in the north to
Overton Hill in the south.
Find out how the Ridgeway was formed by a
collision with Africa - and how migrating herds of reindeer and horses may have
worn the tracks which now form Britain's oldest road.
|Ancient route - The Ridgeway is one of the South's wonders|
Archaeologist Lucinda Reeves continues her ramble across the prehistoric
landscapes of southern England.
Joining her at Uffington this week is
the Chief Archaeologist for English Heritage, David Miles.
Much of the Ridgeway
follows the ancient chalk ridge route used by prehistoric man, passing through
two distinct landscapes - the open downland of the west and the gentle, wooded
countryside of the Chiltern Hills in the east.
The route crosses the River
Thames at Goring and the landscape changes once again, becoming more intimate
and less open before heading eastwards into the Chiltern Hills.
The Ridgeway has provided a route for travellers, cattle drovers, traders and
armies moving through this corridor of fertile chalk downland.
power of music
Meet Nick - who has Tourettes.
|Healing power - how music can help Tourettes sufferers|
Throughout his childhood Nick and his family have struggled to cope
with the effects of a syndrome which saw Nick spending six months in psychiatric
care as a 14-year-old.
But now his songs and music have had an astonishing
effect on his condition.
Tourette Syndrome (TS) is a neurological disorder
characterised by involuntary tics.
