Standing stones and sunny sketches

We couldn’t have had better weather for our April visit to Stonehenge! It was warm and sunny for our costumed pilgrimage to the Cursus Barrows, where we met another visitor from the past.

The Amesbury Archer (Gareth Owen, from Wessex Archaeology!) had been born and brought up far away in the Alps. He showed us his rare copper knife and flints before joining us for our (mostly!) Bronze Age feast.

Duly refreshed, we all returned to the car park – and the twenty first century – before going to see the Stones themselves. There we asked the Guide lots of questions and then found a good place to sit in the sun and sketch.
