Hingston Hill stone row on Dartmoor. A different sort of battle.
It is now more than seven years since I embarked on the journey to visit, record and interpret the known stone rows in Great Britain. The catalyst for this adventure was the discovery of the stone row at Bancbryn in South Wales and the resulting battle and confusion which highlighted that this group of rare and significant monuments were poorly understood by the archaeological profession. Later this week I will be setting out to visit the two most northerly rows. Once these have been visited all of the surviving original rows identified from the documentation will have been inspected. Inevitably, fresh rows will be identified and in the future it is hoped that these will also be examined. It is also anticipated that some of the rows will benefit from further visits.
There will be a hiatus in fresh weekly posts, but usual service should return in July. I would like to thank you all for your support along this journey of exploration and discovery.
