The Celtic Way Walk Guides to Celtic ANCESTRAL LANDSCAPES are in preparation. Watch this space.
News reports indicate that researchers are excited
about the idea of a Pembrokeshire 'Stonehenge'. ( see The Guardian)The time span between
the bluestones being quarried, and their appearance at Stonehenge suggests this possible
earlier use of the stones to them.
Research linking possible Bluestone quarry sites with the Stonehenge Bluestones and also the debitage, chipping flakes, is detailed painstaking and ongoing. There is a definite buzz at the moment.
The news is exciting for creating the guide to the Pembrokeshire Celtic Way Ancestral Landscape. The guide reflects on prehistoric landscapes that were developed by the 'stoneworkers'. From the coastal dolmens, the cairns, the standing stones, early settlements and tumuli, their efforts are evidence of the use of stone and landscape to create lasting structures. Check the maps for yourself. There is a clear drive from coast towards the hinterland. This is what also drive the route of the Celtic Way through Pembrokeshire to Carmarthenshire, crossing from one to the other in the landscape betweeen Gors Fawr Stone Circle and the woodland site above the river Taf at Gwal y Filiast.
