Vespasians Camp: Stonehenge's Silbury? - 08/21/2013

Conspicuous by its absence in the neolithic Stonehenge  landscape, is a "mother" mound.  Avebury has its Silbury, Marlborough its Merlins Mound, Marden its Hatfield Barrow.  Could Vespasians Camp be the missing key in the landscape?  Not only are the springs here the place of continued reverence since the Mesolithic to Middle Ages, one of the oldest continually occupied human sites in Britain, and one of the main reasons why Stonehenge came to be built where it was - this hill, occupying an important middle ground between Durrington and Stonehenge, is home to one of the largest barrows (53m diameter, around the same size as The Monarch of the Plain) on the Salisbury Plain.  Roughly contemporary with the size of Phase 1&2 of Silbury Hill (also positioned on top of natural springs) could the place I chose to be Arthur's fort in "Stone Lord" be one such mound?  Devoid of any burial except a bronze dagger and secondary cremation, it could have begun in the early neolithic, like a lot of round barrows did. Food for thought. MOON LORD is due out in September with book launches & signings planned this Autumn. Thank you as always for your continued interest and patience.
