possible stone row. gloucester cathedral . rethinking our (henry|seaton) installation in the garth of gloucester cathedral in the light of recent work. these cast concrete pieces were seen as ‘the critical ante-chambers containing material that appears both ancient and modern… it takes the shape of a criciform with its northern ‘transept’ truncated and set againt the ‘monks lavatory’ in the north walk cloisters. this emulates the layout of the cathedral proper with its unequal transepts, but with the direction of the ‘nave’ reflected from east to west. the death of objects suggested in the construction of the work, their strange resemblance to sarcophagus makes their siting within the common ground of the cathedral and close to its once daily bodily functions emphasises the juxtapostion between the sacred and profane contained within the work-in-progress-chamber

many of the quoits in west cornwall have their capstones supported by four main stones making up the opposing sides with a blocking and back stone completing the enclosure. some now have stones fallen or removed and some have been rebuilt in relatively recent times. the earliest megaliths in cornwall announcing the transition to farming or the hearding of cattle and the onset of neolithic practices. the capstones are seemingly carefully chosen to resemble the tors that surround and are intervisible with them. interestingly many have had beach pepples found within or near them

stripple stones circle henge. bodmin moor.

stripple stones circle henge. bodmin moor. this monument has been described as the only circle-henge in south-west england that has many of unique features. the circle was originally ovoid in plan and measured 46.3m by 43.3m. until recently It consisted of only four upright stones and the remains of nine others, most of which have now been re-erected. their height varies from 1.0m to 2.74m unusually tall for stone circles in other parts of cornwall. there is a large centre stone, now recumbent which would have stood about 2.9m high. the stone circle is surrounded by a low fragmentary bank with an internal ditch, the bank 3.0m to 4.5m wide and up to 0.5m high and with an outer diameter probably in the region of 73m by 70m. it also had with a causewayed entrance, 2.7m wide, on the WSW side leading up to two remarkable shaped stones seen in this shot. like most of the circles on bodmin it most likely relates to nearby sacred hills here to hawks tor. also rough tor can be clearly viewed in the near distance-henge

recent discoveries at bryn celli ddu.
a geophysical survey was conducted, recently, around the bryn celli ddu chambered tomb exposing evidence of a cairn cemetery. the 5,000-year-old tomb, a complex dating from the neolithic through to early bronze age, was also found to include the at least four burial cairns and a cluster of prehistoric pits with pottery deposits, worked flint, and tools. its relationship to the summer equinox was tested confirming that the main passage focuses the light along its length and illuminating the entire polygonal stone chamber.

in addition 8 new cupmarked rock art on associated outcrops have been identified, using 3d scanning techniques. a dumbbell motif surrounded by singular cup-marks, cup-marks in close formation, possibly in the form of a rosette and one with a large cup-mark
