Circle henge

Avebury (Circle henge) by Kammer Taken 10th May 2003: The Barber Stone, viewed from the north east, where the body of a man was found dating back to the fourteen century CE. As I understand it, the predominant theory is that his death was caused by the weight of the stone itself falling on him during it's felling. In case you're trying to locate this stone, it's in the south west quarter of the henge.

Flotsky asked me to take this shot because he liked the stone, so I dutifully did. I don't think either of us realised at the time that it had an extra significance. I only identified it by chance, some time later.
