EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the timeless beauty and enigmatic aura of Avebury Stone Circle, located in the picturesque village of Avebury, Wiltshire. Standing tall and proud in the south-east sector of this ancient site, the imposing standing stones command attention as they silently tell tales from a distant past. In the foreground stands an intriguing formation known as the Devils Chair, adding an air of mystery to this already fascinating scene. Its weathered surface bears witness to countless generations that have come before us, evoking a sense of reverence for those who once gathered here. Photographed by John Gay, a skilled lensman whose work has become synonymous with capturing historical wonders, this image transports viewers back to prehistoric times when these monumental stones were first erected. The precise date remains uncertain; however, their significance is undeniable. Avebury Stone Circle holds not only archaeological importance but also carries deep-rooted folklore and spiritual symbolism. It serves as a reminder of our ancestors' ingenuity and connection with nature—a testament to human resilience throughout history. As we gaze upon this remarkable photograph print by John Gay—courtesy of Historic England—we are reminded that some mysteries may never be fully unraveled. Yet it is through images like these that we can appreciate and preserve our rich cultural heritage for future generations to marvel at and ponder over.
