I’ve been puzzling all day about my assignment to bring something “materially queer” to my English class tomorrow, not sure what it actually meant. Having researched, and trying to be creative, I’m hoping my lovely Celtic cross will suffice! Let’s bring religion into this bad boy (as usual!)
In the form of its ditch and the animal bones that were carefuly placed there, the first Stonehenge was not so different from other enclosures of a similar date. Even cremated human bones have been found at other sites of this time. What made Stonehenge so unusual is what happened next.
The arrival of the stones in about 2500BC transformed Stonehenge from something simple and quite ordinary into something unique and quite extraordinary.
