Silbury Sun Roll.

A wee reminder that next Sunday through to Tuesday should be good days , weather permitting , for the Silbury sun roll . This phenomena involves the sun “rolling “ down the side of the man made mound when seen from the site of the contemporaneous palisaded enclosures . This demonstrates that the ancestors were not just a bunch of mound building navvies , and as there is no corresponding “roll up “ the hill , it is obvious they were actually creating a topographical metaphor for their future “descendents “and it has taken until now for us to appreciate it , there is so much more to decode .
Coat , cough ,seriously though . It is a perfectly natural phenomena , there has been little change to the hill since and the what is seen today is no different from what it would have looked like approx 4500 years ago when the hill was completed , if it was ever noticed .
Fortunately it wasn’t discovered by those who’s agenda might construe such an event as something archaeoastronomically salient , otherwise we would never hear the end of it .
