Avebury Stone Circle
Was fortunate enough to be taken to one of the largest prehistoric henges in Britain a couple of days ago on the eve of the full moon (thanks Craig!). Avebury stone circle is over 4000 years old and is a designated world heritage site and forms one of the most complex prehistoric complexes in Europe. With long barrows, burial mounds and of course lots of massive stones!
Unfortunately alot of it has been destroyed by building and farming in the area and even now the main road passes right thru the circle and the little town is located in the centre.
Even though, the importance and power of such a huge scale of a place can still be felt and some of the stones have been restored to their former glory.
A very yummy day.
