Wiltshire Heritage Museum’s charity fundraising “Auction of Promises” takes place this Sunday, September 12th.

Various lots are on offer ranging from a professional chef coming round to your house to cook a slap up meal to a guided tour “behind the scenes” at Avebury World Heritage Site and Alexander Keiller Museum.

But in our view the best lot (by far!) is…. “your own bespoke geophysical survey“!

Any suggestions?!

History, prehistory, christianity and paganism are often entwined like celtic knotwork one religion meshes into another, but did the Romans really worship at Stonehenge?

“The traditional view of Romans and British standing stones such as at Stonehenge is that there is nothing more than a most casual association. Even Roman archaeology at Stonehenge was dismissed: at Stonehenge, Roman pottery, coins, and various small metal items as well as what are likely to be contemporary secondary burials were found.”

The web is full of fascinating articles, each and every day something else to read, so every now and then the Journal  picks one out in this instance History Hunters International  the article is called Romans at Stonehenge: from standing stones to cosmic pillars .
