|I love these stones! A modern version of these two stands on Ham Hill. A drawing of the modern sculpture appears in the leaflet on Ham Hill Country Park (and hillfort) that I picked up on Friday. (Of course, I didn't see them because I didn't get the book 'til I was leaving!) Apparently the 'Timestones', as they're called, work like this: "On mid summer's morning, at sun rise, the positioning of the stones means that the sunlight falls through the hole on the circular stone and lights up the axe head behind." (They look like a number '10' in the drawing, but the '1' is shaped like a tall Bronze Age axe head. The circular stone is carved with intricate patterns taken from designs seen on a Celtic bucket handle excavated from the hill.)|
