#Solstice #Sunrise at the Barrow - a meditation on time, what litte, we know of #AngloSaxon "#Litha", and on what #livinghistory #history and #archaeology is truly "for". 🧵 Image
Very early yesterday morning members Æd and AlexP travelled to @SoultonHall @SacredStonesLtd Soulton Long Barrow to experience a unique moment in the solar calendar which, though concerned with the reckoning of time, is essentially universal and #timeless. 1/32
The Midsummer Solstice has always been a significant moment in the year, across many cultures, as far back as deep #prehistory. In Britain our landscape is dotted with #stoneage #neolithic and #bronzeage #prehistoric monuments which bear witness to this. 2/32 Image

Our Bronze Age Roundhouse virtual reality experience case study is now live ⚡

Jono Sutton, our in-house 3D Environment Artist, has created an engaging and informative 3D reconstruction of the Bronze Age Roundhouse excavated at Bitham Park, Westbury 👨‍🎨
Wessex Archaeology was commissioned by RPS Consulting Services Ltd on behalf of Barratt David Wilson Homes to undertake a large-scale excavation.

Don't get me wrong, I adore Gil Kane's art. But his covers? Meh. They all look the same!

#comicbooks #BronzeAge #GilKane ImageImageImageImage
I guess this is what Marvel bigshots wanted, but every cover is a crowded fight scene, usually with a superdude flopping over backwards with one of Kane's signature limp-wristed poses. ImageImageImageImage
Kane drew like 75% of Marvels covers in 1972, 73, 74 and 75 and one is pretty much the same as the other. Sweet gig for Gil, but I would've MUCH rather had him drawing stories. ImageImageImageImage

There are many different types of stone structures in #KSA and it is easy to be confused by all the different shapes and what they were used for. In this thread, we will present the main types of structures our project has documented, the names we use, and some basic information. Image
Mustatil- these large structures are generally rectangular(ish) in shape and consist of two thick platforms at either end connected by 2-5 long walls. These are ritual structures dating to the #Neolithic i.e 7000 years ago. #MustatilMonday. Image
Kite- A kite is a large animal hunting trap. They are found in a range of different shapes and sizes, from simple V-shape constructions to much more elaborate structures, like those found around #Khaybar. These date from the #Neolithic onwards. ImageImage

Thanks to @kimbiddulph it’s #Archaeology31 time again! - Starting with prompt number one: #new.

Which in this case is: New year, new journal. Empty pages waiting to be filled with thoughts, notes, sketches ... opportunities. Image
#Archaeology31 day 2, #future, offers a great chance to highlight a topic I found particularly interesting as of late:

How will an #ArchaeologyOfTheFuture look like - What do *we* leave behind for future colleagues?

(Weekend reading recommendations included. 😉) Image
Starting with the question what actually constitutes #CulturalHeritage, #sites, and #monuments of our age ...

This 📷 is the ruins of Hattusa, capital of the Hittite Empire in the #BronzeAge. Tax collectors there amassed a fortune in grain, hundreds of tonnes of which are still inside!

Here's an #AntiquityThread on what the largest find of its kind tells us about ancient politics 🧵 1/ Image
Hattusa was established as by Hattusili I ~1650BC. The Hittite Empire would go on to rule most of Anatolia within a few centuries, coming into conflict with Assyrians and the New Kingdom of Egypt. 2/

A big empire needs a big granary and archaeologists uncovered one at Hattusa in 1999. It's over 100 metres long and could hold ~6,0000 tonnes of grain - enough to feed a population of 20 000–30 000 for one year! 3/

Welcome to today's virtual #LowTideTrail. Flamborough Head juts into the North Sea on the Yorkshire coast. The area has seen much defensive activity over 4500 years. We'll also see some #archaeology of lifesaving on our way. Let's take a look! @Active_Coast #HumberDiscovery
This stretch of coast was particularly hazardous to sailing ships. The North Landing Lifeboat station was built in 1871 & was 1 of 2 stations covering Flamborough Head. Footage of the final launch of the North Bay lifeboat can be found via @YorkshireFilm-…
Yorkshire cobles are a traditional fishing boat used along this coast. Flamborough had an active fleet of cobles operating out of North landing. This example has been laid up.

Here's a film about fishing from North Bay in 1933-…

Terrific research by @peterherring10 suggests that many upland stone rows & standing stones were deliberate visual markers of the specific areas of upland grazing in which 1 or another #BronzeAge group, settled at a distance, had rights of common pasture and that... (1) Image
... marker stones like this one were placed where a group’s common pasture first came into view. They were visual signals in the landscape that framed that familiar point along a journey at which each of us knows with complete contentment that one has arrived 'home'. And .. (2) Image
... this was how landscape & feeling were used to embed the collective memory of landscapes of each group’s collective rights in one generation after the next, to pass it on to the young people who accompanied the experienced herders.. (3) Image
