Artist's Description

“FOLLOW YOUR BLISS”

- Joseph Campbell

At Blackbury Camp, a historic and ancient Iron Age Sight, which is near Beer in Devon (England), the bluebells carpet the woods in Springtime – it is an ancient Iron Age site and people come and enjoy this carpet of blue. I quietly took this photo of a couple sitting amongst the bluebells – what a good idea to bring chairs and enjoy the view!
This lovely location is in the middle of some enchanting woods. You have to drive down a very rustic lane to reach this place in the heart of the forest.

I use a Lumix Panasonic point and shoot camera

Hillfort in Devon

In Prehistoric Hillforts in Devon, this one is described as’important’ and with ‘an unusual entrance’. The excavation in 1952-54 by the Devon Archaeological Society showed that the main gate had been an imposing structure.
Inside is very cool and peaceful, with a cathedral-like canopy of tall trees. The enclosing banks are still well-defined, and at the southern entrance you are still able to see the unusual layout of defensive banks. The land falls away down the slope of the hill here.

The oval enclosure of about 2 hectares now in open woodland straddles a 180m steep-sided Greensand ridge capped with clay and flints. It was defended by a substantial rampart and ditch, with one entrance facing the southern slopes; other gaps are recent. A triangular earthwork was added screening the gate – the so-called barbican entrance; it contained a central embanked passageway with a compartment on either side, probably used as stock pens.
Excavation showed that the main gate had been an imposing structure. The rounded rampart ends projected forward and were built up with flint nodules, retained by a timber palisade. Deep post-holes indicated the gate, probably with a bridge to link the ramparts. There was a second timber gateway at the entrance to the barbican. In the interior, the post-holes of a rectilinear hut were uncovered with a cooking pit nearby. Iron slag from the local limonite ores, whetstones and spindle whorls were found along with more than 1,200 sling stones. The pottery included decorated Glastonbury ware and some earlier plain Iron Age wares indicating that the fort was in use from the early 3rd century BC onwards."
