Lovely tribute in The Quietus, with music from various TMA contributors:

Thanks for this A, and Daniel also for the same link. There is a lot to take in and I will have to go back to it - have just watched Julian Cope's episode linking Roman roads with prehistoric sites (in this case Silbury), jumping around on the Mother's Jam in conversation with himself "I once found 27 different types of mushroom here in an hour" and his fascinating retelling of the Polisher Stone demonstrated with a beautiful polished axe-head.
Quote:
"Cope pays generous, near-reverential tribute to Burl in his own megalith masterpiece – indeed, the only topic with (slightly) more index references than his 40, is… Avebury, with 43!"
So I am sure those programmes, the TMA book, and this very website stand a a tribute to Aubrey Burl.
