|Description ||Stukeley, Circus of the Brittons Perith (Penrith)
The caption reads:'View of the Circus of the Brittons (sic) on ye bank of ye Souther near Perith (Penrith?), Aug 15th 1723'. There appears to be a form of Olympic Games going on! This is marked '93 2d'.
An early engraving from the work by Richard Stukeley: 'Itinerarium Curiosum: or, An Account of the Antiquitys and Remarkable Curiositys in Nature or Art, Observ'd in Travels thro' Great Britain.'|

|Which site is this anyone? Mayburgh Henge and King Arthur's Round Table perhaps?|
|Andy, they have the same picture on the notice board at the site. I took a photo of it in 2002.|

|I thought it was. Funny there are no stones shown in the henge on the left, as there must have been more there at the time.|
|The two henges shown are King Arthur's Round Table and the little known third henge known as The Little Round Table. The Little Table was partialy destroyed when the Lowther Gatehouse was built but traces of the bank can still be seen. |
