|Description ||West Kennett Long Barrow, Entrance|
|hmm.... looks like a row of teeth....|
|I've read that the entrance was sealed in 2600BCE with megaliths forming the body of an ox (one of the Goddess' forms)- symbol of resurrection. Can't really make that out in the photo. I will need to visit the site some day.|
|If you havenít already, then please do, itís a must and really makes you think about its use. The modern reconstruction has left nearly 12 metres of central passage, and the chambers are sealed but partly accessible.|
|And try and go very early in the morning when you stand more of a chance of having the place to yourself!|
|Yeah, you won't clash with a coach load of Americans or others. Not That they shouldn't visit our great sites. It's just that there is no way you can appreciate it when it becomes like a school outing.|
