the ordinary and extra-ordinary. columbia road lock-up rosewall hill granite tor.

on a hill across the valley from here -on trink there’s a large tor known locally as the grandmother’s stone.
is this extra-ordinary configuration here its counterpart? – the grandfather’s stone? these stones i’m sure entered the world of our ancestors in a similar way – by naming it it enters the imagination and the story begins.
the ordinary also needs a name if it is to be recovered and reclaimed. a bolted door; little used;? locking down a hidden world. shut tight; lock-up; keep out; lockdown; sealed up; sealed tight – this door also becomes an opening onto the imaginary.

the mound in the dark grove. anglesey wales

the mound in the dark grove. anglesey wales
bryn celli ddu may be translated as ‘the mound in the dark grove’, and some have speculated that during its time of construction, it was located in a large clearing then surrounded entirely forest. archaeologists have suggested that the original stone circles were set up during the neolithic period, around 3000 bc.

around a thousand years after it was built, it became an ‘entrance grave’ or passage tomb, a type of burial monument found around the irish seaboard.

bryn celli ddu was accurately aligned to coincide with the rising sun on the summer solstices with the rays of light penetrating down the passage way into the burial chamber. this connects if firmly in the tradition of the irish passage graves notably new grange with its ‘letterbox’ opening projecting light onto the rear wall of its chamber.
