Artist's Description

“THIS FAIR LUMINOUS MIST,
THIS DIVINE AND BEAUTY-MAKING ELEMENT
OF NATURE”

-Coleridge, Samuel Taylor

Blackbury camp is in Devon, England. It is an ancient Historic iron Age Hillfort site and has an enchanting quality, I think it is an ‘energy vortex’ because one feels a sense of vibrancy just by being there. Every Spring time, the bluebells burst into blossom and carpet the ground with clouds of blue colour and fragrance.

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."

“TREES ARE SANCTUARIES.
WHOEVER KNOWS HOW TO SPEAK TO THEM,
WHOEVER KNOWS HOW TO LISTEN TO THEM,
CAN LEARN THE TRUTH.
THEY DO NOT PREACH LEARNING AND PRECEPTS.
THEY PREACH, UNDETERRED BY PARTICULARS -
THE ANCIENT LAW OF LIFE”

~Hermann Hesse
