The picture is nothing to do with the title. It’s from Gilbert White’s garden. I don’t have a picture of the Henge that I have taken. I haven’t been there for a good ten to fifteen years, although I have driven quite near it a couple of times.
I was watching a YouTube programme about the area, not just Stonehenge the programme talked about Silbury Hill , Avebury, & Amesbury Archer whom I had never heard of but turns out to be a tremendous archeological find. The programme looked at the people who would have built these sites and tried to explore why they put in so much effort into constructing these artefacts.
I find these things absolutely fascinating, and would really love to visit them and shoot some video there. What is it about these things that draws me so much? Now, it is very difficult to write about it without straying into an area that I amdesperate to stay away from online, becasue it is one of those areas that can so easily lead down alleyways that I really don’t want to go down.
Think about this, Whether it is the Kennet Long Barrow, or the Avebury Rings what are they all about? and how are they linked, and what word links those sites and their meaning to today? I’ll leave you to guess.
