Thanks Moss,
Your information about Woodhenge and the link is the best clue yet. I'm going way off the topic of megalthic-poems here, so don't really expect any further replies but I'm off on trail who find out who were the people who possibly sacrificed children - the concept is almost biblical.

I'd better stop now before I get into trouble for subverting this thread (sorry LS). I've stopped.


Tony Pollard and Vincenzo Formicola are two archaeos who have an interest in prehistoric war /sacrifice , an area that gets neglected . Google the latter or "Sunghir children " and youll get some interesting info .I noticed in the latest DES someone is doing a Phd on "Bronze Age burials of children in Britain and Ireland " which you would expect to have a number of sacrificial examples .
