EDITORS COMMENTS
Basking in the ethereal glow of a sunset, the ancient timber circle of Sea Henge stands proudly against the backdrop of the tranquil Norfolk coastline. This evocative image, captured by renowned photographer Alan Bull, offers a glimpse into the mystical past of England's early bronze age. Located in Holme Next the Sea, the Sea Henge timber circle is a remarkable archaeological discovery, unearthed in 1998 during a routine ploughing operation. The circle, believed to date back to around 2000 BC, consists of 55 oak posts arranged in a circular pattern, with a central oak tree stump at its heart. The circle is surrounded by a moat filled with water, which would have once been a significant ritual site for the ancient community. The shifting sands and tides of the North Sea have played a crucial role in preserving this precious piece of history. The constant movement of the water has protected the timbers from decay, allowing them to endure for over 4,000 years. The sunset view in this photograph adds an extra layer of magic to the scene, as if the circle is bidding farewell to the day and welcoming the night. The Sea Henge timber circle is a testament to the rich cultural heritage of Norfolk and the broader history of the British Isles. It serves as a reminder of the intricate connections between the people of the past and the natural world, and the enduring power of the elements in shaping our history.
