It’s been a long time hitchhiking my way from London to Wiltshire, England. I have finally found my way to Stonehenge. What a mystical and quiet place. It’s amazing to see these stones in a circle like so or what they might have been. It leaves you wondering how did they come together back in 3000 BC with the lack of resources we now have today. The site and its surroundings were added to the UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites in 1986.
As I was meditating on top of the stones, an interesting fella passed by. I couldn’t really see who it was but glad to know I wasn’t alone. Maybe he can help me climb back down…
According to Mike Parker Pearson, leader of the Stonehenge Riverside Project, Stonehenge was a place of burial from its beginning to its zenith in the mid third millennium B.C. The cremation burial dating to Stonehenge’s sarsen stones phase is likely just one of many from this later period of the monument’s use and demonstrates that it was still very much a domain of the dead.
