EDITORS COMMENTS
This print by James O. Davies transports us to the enchanting Merrivale Prehistoric Settlement, nestled in Dartmoor, Devon. As the sun gracefully sets on this ancient site, its stones are bathed in a warm orange glow that accentuates their timeless beauty. The atmosphere is nothing short of magical as darkness descends and dusk blankets the landscape. The floodlights strategically placed around the settlement create an ethereal ambiance, illuminating every intricate detail of these prehistoric structures. Against the backdrop of a deep red sky, one cannot help but marvel at the ingenuity and skill of our ancestors who built this remarkable settlement thousands of years ago. Davies' expertly captured image captures both the grandeur and intimacy of Merrivale Prehistoric Settlement. It invites us to contemplate our place within history and ponder upon those who once called this place home under similar night skies. With no mention made about commercial use or any company affiliation, we are free to immerse ourselves solely in the awe-inspiring scene before us. This photograph serves as a testament to Historic England's dedication to preserving and celebrating our rich cultural heritage for generations to come. In Davies' work, we find not just an image frozen in time but also an invitation to explore our past through artistry and imagination—a reminder that even after centuries have passed, there is still much wonder left for us to discover within these ancient stones.
