This article applies digital modelling techniques to the later Neolithic landscape and monument 'complex' around the Avebury area of Wiltshire, England. The models produced are combined with a phenomenological approach to examine a journey along the megalithic avenues of this area, and to better understand possible meanings associated with, and relationships between, the monuments. The article also seeks to briefly demonstrate how phenomenological approaches might be enhanced by the use of digital 3D modelling.
