Cliff Coastal Erosion Hillfort Iron Age


EDITORS COMMENTS
This print by Damian Grady showcases the Embury Beacon, an Iron Age promontory fort nestled on the picturesque Hartland Peninsula in Devon. The image captures the stunning remnants of this ancient hillfort, with a fraction of its eastern ramparts still visible while the rest has succumbed to relentless coastal erosion. The photograph offers a unique aerial perspective, allowing viewers to appreciate both the historical significance and natural beauty of this site. As we gaze upon it, we are transported back in time to an era when these cliffs stood as formidable defenses against potential invaders. The juxtaposition between land and sea is striking; one can almost feel the power of nature's forces at play. The rugged coastline serves as a reminder that even man-made structures are no match for Mother Nature's ceaseless tides. Grady's skillful composition not only highlights the architectural marvels left behind by our Iron Age ancestors but also raises awareness about the ongoing threat posed by coastal erosion. It prompts us to reflect on how fragile our heritage truly is and encourages us to take action in preserving these valuable remnants for future generations. In this single frame, Grady manages to capture history, nature's might, and humanity's responsibility all at once – making it a thought-provoking piece that invites contemplation and appreciation for both past civilizations and our planet's ever-changing landscape.
