Catterick Henge



This henge was originally thought to be a Roman Amphitheatre but is now more likely to be a henge. It's odd that a bunch of Roman archaeologists mistook a stonebuilt structure for one made of earth. The henge has had a treble blow in terns of damage - firstly the Roman road of Dere street went through its centre - perhaps adding weight to Julian's assertions about the Roman conquest. Secondly, the racecourse went over it, and thirdly the remainder is being quarried. Poor old henge. Posted by BrigantesNation
