I had no shortage of material with which to compose Where the Cold Winds Blow: A Study of the Scientific Stranglehold on Stonehenge, and as I write this, I’m preparing it for publication on Amazon. However, I’ve just been told about this fascinating feature on Silbury Hill in Marlborough News Online, so I’m going to have to return to my manuscript and include it, because it’s entirely relevant to my case and it is simply far too good to leave out.
Aside from any other consideration, it immediately occurred to me that there is indeed a possible link between the River Thames and Silbury Hill, but it hasn’t appeared in this piece and I very much doubt it was in the Current Archaeology piece from which the Marlborough News Online article was taken. Rather than write to the editor or submit a comment, however, I’ll include it in Where the Cold Winds Blow, but if you can’t wait for this study to appear, then I’m sure that you can very easily work it out for yourselves, as everything you need to know is squarely in the public domain, is freely available and has been for a long time. Whether it constitutes proof or a convincing case is another matter entirely, but the joy surely lies in trying to form something that makes some kind of sense from the tenuous, shifting shadows of the past.
