I think the year was 1997, give or take. I had some time off work, some spare money and fancied a little adventure. So quite on impulse I decided to go and visit Stonehenge and Avebury Circle in Wiltshire, England. It was only a few hours away so I packed a bag and got on a train.
I visited Stonehenge and thought it was nice to see up close, although nothing more than that really, so off I headed for Avebury Circle just a bus ride away. I’d recently watched Richard Hoaglands briefing to the United Nations on “The Monuments of Mars” and Avebury Circle came up in that presentation. I felt drawn to the place as cliché as that sounds.
