Hello, sir! How the jiggins are you? It's been... fecking ages!
Great to see you around, mate!
I'm OK. You're right; it has been a long while. Still into stones - just come back from a few days around Avebury (too fecking cold to do much perambulation, but the Red Lion is still OK for a visit) and we walked along the back lanes to Trusloe, wondering just which bits of Beckhampton Avenue were in which barn footings
. And went down to the Winterbourne Stoke Barrows
for a wintry wander (it was snowing...). I must say that the roadworks on the roandabout there make pulling into the layby relatively easy!
Stopped off at Glasto on the way back down here, and scored a copy of "Orkney and Shetland: an archaeological guide" by Laing in hardback for £2. Result. Despite its age it is quite topical; it makes reference to the same type of barrow being found in both Wessex and Orkney, which ties in with the recent MPP programme and the communal carve and crunch of distant diasporic cattle that apparently occurred at Durrington.... oh... and we've been copping a few "holy" wells around Devon and Cornwall... someone should do a website...
I hope it's all good with you, chum
