|Description ||The Stonehenge Archer or Bowman, whose skeleton was found in the ditch surrounding Stonehenge in 1978. He lived between 2,400 and 2,200 BC and was 25 to 30 years of age when he died from his injuries, having been shot with several arrows. The skeleton is on display in the museum at Salisbury.|
|Stonehenge expert and friend Dennis Price has an elegant story about how this man came to be in the Ditch. Based upon evidence, the theory is quite romantic and makes great sense.|
(Eternal Idol.com: Stonehenge Sentinel, Dec 2010)
My own theory about this man is somewhat divergent from his.
The Ditch is the Eternal Empty, or Place of the Dead beyond the Stars (Aubrey's). The interior Embankment represents a Barrier between the Blackness of Death and the Domain of Light, Realm of the Living Sun.
This ignoble cretin was apprehended while trespassing into the Citadel of Forever, killed by sentry's and pitched like a mangy dog into the Great Empty. His disheveled corpse left to rot with neither Ceremony nor Grave Goods, this Cursed Soul now drifts blindly in Darkness among the Nameless Dead, ever-seeking a redemption that is forever denied.
That'll teach em!
