Although many would consider it a little early for such things, this year in the run-up to Yule we thought we’d try something a little different here on the Heritage Journal. After a bit of brainstorming, we came up with the idea of getting our readers involved in creating a Prehistoric Heritage Advent Calendar.

And that’s where you come in. Whilst we already have a  large collection of photos between us here, many of the shots suitable for this time of year have already been used in the past on the Heritage Journal, and it would be nice to see others’ efforts for a change. So, if you have a suitably wintry/seasonal photo depicting a prehistoric heritage site that we could use, please send it through to us at either of the email addresses on our Contacts page.

The photo could be of a site, feature, excavation, artefact or something a bit more ‘creative’, as long as it’s suitably wintry or ‘seasonal’ and fits with the ‘prehistoric heritage’ theme.

Whilst we can’t/won’t pay for contributions, in the spirit of the season all photographs used as part of the series will be considered for the award of a small token of thanks, All works submitted must be your own, and we claim no rights, other than to use the photo in this year’s Advent series, with suitable attribution. There’s a deadline of 30th November for entries, so dig through your digital archives and let’s showcase the prehistoric heritage we have here in the British Isles!
