About The Prehistory Guys

A big hello from Rupert and Michael - welcome to The Prehistory Guys Patreon page!
We're on a mission and we'd like your help. Pleas read our 'mission statement' below:

To be a resource for understanding of the distant past through interaction with the world of professional prehistoric archaeology.
To create the best audio and visual content we can to illustrate and explain the lives of people of the past and the materials and monuments they left behind.
To engage our audience with honest critical thinking, some humour, a little irreverence and the highest production values.

If the sentiments expressed above jive with you and you'd like to help make a difference communicating about the distant past and enjoy more of the content we produce, know that
becoming a Prehistory Guys Patreon supporter will enable us to increase our output and to travel further afield in search of new stories, discoveries and spectacular sites!

If that sounds like something you'd like to be a part of, take a look at the options displayed on this page and choose a level you're OK with, and we look forward to enjoying the journey with you.

Our thanks to you all.

Ever since we completed Standing with Stones over 12 years ago, we were asked: "when are you going to make the next one?"
Well, the honest answer is: when we can afford to to!
Producing a film is a full-on commitment. Confident in a reasonable regular income, we will be able to commit our time and energy to producing another major movie to the high standards we aimed for with Standing with Stones.

Standing with Stones was a journey through space - a travelogue - exploring the length and breadth of Britain & Ireland. This time, we suspect, we will be aiming for something even more ambitious: a journey through TIME.

We would be aiming to answer a huge question: what led up to the explosion of megalithic culture in Britain and the epitome of its expression on the plains of Wiltshire and the Stonehenge landscape?

As you're probably aware, the story starts way back in time, in another land and cannot be told without including the prehistory of the Middle East, the ancient Danube, the Balkans, Russia, and the Mediterranean before we even begin to get to North East Europe and the 'Neolithisation' of Britain & Ireland.

When we achieve the 5K income, we'll be financially free enough to commit to this massive enterprise. We'll need to further fundraise via Kickstarter or similar for the capital production costs involved, but In the spirit of the original 'Standing with Stones', this team of two promise to travel far and wide, on your behalf, in search of answers and stunning photography.
