swinside stone circle. the stones used in its construction were porphyritic slate collected from the adjacent swinside fells, and are of the type that is known locally as 'grey cobbles'. the ring has a diameter of about 26.8m, and currently contains 55 stones, although when originally constructed there probably would have been more. it has been suggested that along with castlerigg and other cumbrian stone circles, that it has a close affinity with the kings stones circle in oxfordshire and may be by the same builders as part of a thriving axe trade. the lake district has been an important part of the axe industry since the neolithic and is based on outcrops of fine grained greenstone made into highly polished stone axes. #swinside stone circle. the stones used in its construction were porphyritic slate collected from the adjacent swinside fells, and are of the type that is known locally as 'grey cobbles'. the ring has a diameter of about 26.8m, and currently contains 55 stones, although when originally constructed there probably would have been more. it has been suggested that along with castlerigg and other cumbrian stone circles, that it has a close affinity with the kings stones circle in oxfordshire and may be by the same builders as part of a thriving axe trade. the lake district has been an important source of stone axes since the beginning of the neolithic. the langdale valley has outcrops of fine-grained greenstone that can be highly polished and produced highly valued stone axes that were traded throughout britain. it has been suggested that these stone circles provided the basis for their distribution. #axetrade #neolithic #stonecircles #megaliths #ancientstone #triblegathering #ancientceremony #swinside #longmeg #castlerigg #castleriggstonecircle #longmegandherdaughters #thekingsstone #cumbria #cumbrianfellsmore at montagecity.com axetrade #neolithic #stonecircles #megaliths #ancientstone #triblegathering #ancientceremony #swinside #longmeg #castlerigg #castleriggstonecircle #longmegandherdaughters #thekingsstone #cumbria #cumbrianfellsmore at montagecity.com

portal dolmen. whispering knights. believed to be the earliest of the rollright stones, they are the remains of the burial chamber of an early or middle neolithic portal dolmen, lying 400 metres east of the king's men circle. four standing stones survive, forming a chamber about two square metres in area around a fifth recumbent stone, probably the collapsed roof capstone. excavations in the 1980’s revealed that the portal dolmen had never been a part of a longer cairn, as had been suggested by some earlier investigators. neolithic pottery found at the time as part of the excavations has suggested the early date.#neolithic #wisperingknights #portaldolmen #rollrightstones #archaeology #burialchamber #monoliths #capstone

rollright stone circle. ‘the kings men’ on the the borders of oxfordshire and warwickshire near chipping norton. it has been dated to the kate neolithic. it has been calculated that given that the oolotic limestone monoliths are heavily weathered surface stones and probably sledged to the site from position lower in the valley, it would have taken twenty people some four weeks to construct the circle but would have required careful planning and some geometrical knowledge. it’s a near perfect circle 31.4 metres across and seems based on π times 10 meters. this diameter is reflected in a number of stone circle in the marlborough area. #ancientarts #ancient #neolithic #rollright #rollrightstones #ancientwisdom #archaeology #ancientgeometry #stonecircles #megaliths

this prehistoric landscape at kings mead near heathrow compresses over 12,000 years of human history, and contains neolithic buildings and a barrow, early bronze age ring ditches and a neaker burial, two later bronze age farmsteads, an iron age settlement, and a romano-british farmstead. this early neolithic house was discovered in 2012. Measuring 15m by 17.5m, the outline of its walls is displayed by the course of foundation gullies. leaf-shaped arrowhead and small fragments of plain bowl ware were found at the house helped dating. these houses have been associated with the neolithic long barrow tradition often echoing their trapezoid shape and believed to have developed out of covering the houses after they have fallen out of use. this type of early neolithic house signals the dawn of farming in this country. these date to around 3800-3600 BC, pre-dating the earliest causewayed enclosures and ranging in length from a modest 6m to over 20m (in scotland). most of these houses were built of timber, leaving little more than a cluster of post-holes to mark their presence. photo gareth chaffey. #neolithic #neolithichouse #timberhouses #earlyneolithic #farming
