“The second stone points to Silbury Hill along the line of the midsummer sunrise.”
“Can that be accidental?”
“It seems unlikely.”
… “Would there be a symbolic significance for that?”
“One would expect so.”
“Could we offer an explanation?”
“We would be happy to hazard one.”
If Silbury is a ‘Harvest Hill’ and many people believe it to be just that,
then, like as not, the ‘harvest’ was ‘seeded’ from here.
Avebury, as much as anything else, is a ‘Temple of Agricultural Man’.
Agriculture, like stone, was, and still is, a technology.
The former, holds its salient points in tact,
the latter has lost its to mystery.
Hidden Avebury: Seeking the Unseen
12th – 14th June, 2020
A Living Land Workshop…
Almost everyone knows of Avebury, the great stone circle within which a village was built. A World Heritage site and one of the most incredible sacred complexes of prehistory, it is justly famous for its beauty and mystery. The site attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors every year but while most simply walk in awe amongst the majestic standing stones of the Circle and Avenue, there is far more to discover for those who will walk the paths less travelled.
Join us in June, 2020, as we explore some of the hidden corners of this amazing landscape, ranging beyond the boundaries of the Circle to seek a deeper understanding of what our ancestors hoped to touch by building this earthly temple to the stars.
Based in the landscape around Avebury and beyond, this weekend will entail some relatively easy walking. There will be time during the weekend to explore Avebury and its stones.
The weekend runs from Friday afternoon to early Sunday afternoon, and costs £75 per person. Meals and accommodation are not included in the price and should be booked separately by all attendees. Meals are often taken together at a local pub or café. For those arriving by public transport, we are able to offer a limited number of places in shared vehicles; please let us know if this would be required.
