The prehistoric archaeological site that I visited yesterday contains a large circular depression in the ground, obviously a former pithouse. To my amazement two original vertical tree posts used to hold up the former roof are still there intact after all of these years (see lower photo). Years ago I invested considerable energy into the architecture of these “in the ground” structures, creating several 3D renderings. See upper photo.

Prehistory and natural history, side by side

Today’s hike took me again into prehistory, large well built stone buildings where real people once lived. Its amazing to me how talented these stone masons were. I find many stone walls, easily over 900 years old, still intact and standing even when all of the mortar and plaster has weathered away. Very precise workmanship.
