Stones Mailing List members met again at the Rollright Stones on February 5th 2000. We were lucky enough to be joined by renowned author and researcher Paul Devereux, who gave us a short talk inside the circle itself

In March 1998 the regulars of the Stones Mailing List and their friends gathered at the Rollright Stones for a get-together, hopefully the first of many. We were treated to a talk by George Lambrick, shown below to the right of the picture. At the time he was the Deputy Director of the Oxford Archaeology Unit. He led the only recent excavation of the Rollright Stones, and is a trustee of the  Rollright Stones Charitable Trust. Nearby the King's Men circle is te King Stone and the Whispering Knights chambered tomb.

Hear some drumming inside the Rollright circle on Mayday's eve 1999 (1min30). Swirling stereo surround effect - try it with headphones. If your internet connection is not fast enough to play live you can download it for later (440kb). Here's someone playing the flute inside the circle.
