Another vote for witnessing some of the building of Stonehenge, in particular seeing how they really transported and raised those sarsen stones and asking those responsible “Why?”.While not taking place on mainland Britain, the slaughter in the trenches of the First World War are almost 100 years later still an integral part of our national identity. I've been there in modern times, walking through preserved trenches and shell holes and along endless lines of headstones. It would have been terrible to really be there but I think being able to experience life in the trenches of the Somme for just one day would be life changing and would probably put all of our modern day worries into real perspective.Finally, I could think of a hundred concerts I'd love to have seen but picking just one, it would have to be Jimi Hendrix at the 1970 Isle of Wight festival.Pete.
