Talk about Dartmoor 9th May

The Friends of St Andrew’s present an illustrated talk by Alan Endicott on 9th May at 7.30 in St Andrew’s Church:

Alan Endacott was brought up on Dartmoor and has spent his life exploring and trying to make sense of its world-famous prehistoric landscapes, especially the Neolithic and Bronze Age ceremonial or ritual monuments. In 2007, following up a hunch, he discovered a long-buried and forgotten stone circle on an exposed ridge near Sittaford Tor.
His illustrated talk explains his theories regarding the layout of ritual landscapes on northern Dartmoor and the context of the discovery of the Sittaford circle, with personal accounts and some of the insights he has gleaned into the beliefs and rituals of those who built it some 4000 years ago…
