MOST RECENT

A very wet day today, but the woods are so lush and green. This is one of my favourite spots, the ancient sundial at Penpole Point. Hundreds of years ago, when this hilltop was bare of trees, it guided ships into Bristol harbour from the river Severn, and we know from local records it was already known as 'old' in 1650!

The labyrinth at Tibble
.
Labyrinths are unusual ancient monuments. Constructing a labyrinth needed extreme skill. 2-3000 stones had to be laid in the right place so the labyrinth acquired its even and compact form.
.
Don't know why the labyrinth was built but they can guess that it is connected with various spring rites. Perhaps a girl was placed in the middle of the labyrinth and a boy who made his way through to the middle of the labyrinth was supposed to free her. From later times they know that the boy was not allowed to touch the stones. If that happened someone else tried instead.

From a pagan temple to a Christian church to also being the burial place of Raphael, the Pantheon is one of the best preserved monuments of Ancient Rome.

Well, if isn’t the Chairman of the #ancientmonument Society @g_q_a_ @GilesQuarme! Also invited by HRH to celebrate 🎉 the royal 👑 birthday!

Remember us.
We built monuments in our name,
and cities to accommodate our existence.
Remember us.
Concrete, steel, pavement.
We were here.
We destroyed life and slashed our names across the globe.
When there's no one left to remember us,
The wind will whistle through the empty streets,
the hollow concrete buildings will crumble,
but we always had a lurking suspicion that our monuments were empty--our existence subtle.
Remember Us. ✌️
