|Description ||This dramatic logan stone on Zennor Hill only goes to emphasise the special character of this place, and its probable use as a ritualised site. Long before its importance as a neolithic complex and the building of the quoits or dolmen close by, it would almost certainly have been seen as holding special qualities that might have been associated with ancestor worship or as a place of the gods or spirits. The many myths associated with the area relating to giants is just one way this idea is handed down through time. The logan rock can be seen clearly from adjacent hills and sits on the edge of a large flat rock surface with numerous depressions that collect water. Bradley, in his 'An Archaeology of Natural Places', argues the case for understanding these sites and their role in the development of the local cosmologies of our ancestors. |
