A screen shot from:
I had read about the Palisaded enclosures between Silbury and the Sanctuary, but had not seen a map before.
I am curious.
The 'Grooved ware package'
Objects, symbols and rites.
Following rivers all the way from Orkney to Wessex.
The tub, the barrel, the bucket
Incised clay, decorated with spirals and flat lines
Echoing the coiling patterns of the Boyne Valley passage graves
Flat and solid pottery
For brewing the mead of poetry.
To drink with fire and winter pigs
Fractured shards mixed with charcoal
Buried at the foot of timber posts
Along side other things
Chalk plaques, size of a post card
A lattice #
Recalling rivers and fishing nets
The rules of burial
Under the earth
Under the wood
Under the stone
Become a sentence I cannot read
Flint, bone, antler, chalk and pottery..
A magik spell
Chalk balls, antler and bones may be found together
But not with a human burial
Decorated mace heads given to the dead
Chisel ended arrow heads
Flint flakes full of secret fire
Must be buried alone.
Rules dictate and create
The edges of flint
Fragments of bone
Embedded in the root
Of land, wood and stone.
