816 – Ships and Stone Circles

We sat at the waterfront at lunchtime, and enjoyed a sausage role for lunch. I can think of no link at all between the waterfront at Gosport and the departure of the Commodore for Jersey and Stone circles – there just isn’t one.

For a bit I am going to stick with the Neolithic era Like yesterday, we are going to be looking at West Kennet Long Barrow and wider afield. Today, I watched two more videos. The first of these made and narrated by “TaxiDriverJ”; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U0bhE67HuDY covers the four main. Sites; The long barrow, Silbury Hill, Stone Henge and Avebury. Now, don’t get me wrong, I felt there was something missing. The commentary points out the route and the key features. But it makes no attempt to add any depth. No looking at who might have lived or built the artefacts. Now, this may be perfectly adequate for some people, but not for me I’m afraid.

Now this second film; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U0bhE67HuDY is an entirely different kettle of fish, the first film is about 15 minutes long, this epic takes us across England, Ireland, the Isle of Man, and that is as far as I’ve got, with still an hour of the two for which it runs to go. For a YouTube programme, it is one the best and most professionally produced that I have seen.

The second programme acknowledges that we can’t really know what many, most of these sites were used for. It was during this show that I found out about the Dorset Cursus – apparently one of the longest in the country.

An absolutely fascinating couple of hours learning about megalithic & Neolithic sites in the UK.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
