Stanton Drew

42 43 The neoliThiC viSion and the Priddy Circles The original earth structures at Stanton Drew are thought to date back as far as the Middle Neolithic period c. 3,500 BC. Whether a direct connection between megalithic structures and the transition from nomadic huntergatherer to the more settled late Stone Age farmer can be absolutely established remains open to debate, but never before or since this seminal age in human prehistory have such remarkable structures been built. Some scholars argue that the mature science of megalithic architecture arrived in Britain with the Beakers , a Bronze Age race who migrated from northern France circa 3000 BC. The Beaker people, renowned for their craftsmanship and socalled because they buried beakers with their dead, were known to have built stone monuments prior to their migration to Britain. Their subsequent integration with late Neolithic Britons is thus thought to have sparked the revolution in human technology responsible for the great stone temples of Stonehenge, Avebury and Stanton Drew. Three ancient sites of Southern Britain which all mysteriously display a 19o tilt also the wake angle behind an object moving through water.
