Bronze Age monument discovered in Forest of Dean
A previously unknown Bronze Age monument has been discovered hidden in woodland in the Forest of Dean following an airborne laser scan.
The ritual monument, known as a ring cairn, dates back to about 2,000 BC.
It consists of a circular bank with several small limestone standing stones on top.
Archaeologist Jon Hoyle, who found it, said it was the only site of its kind known about in Gloucestershire, and was a "very significant" discovery.

Archaeologist Jon Hoyle said nobody knows precisely what ring cairns were used for 

It was identified following a LiDAR (light detection and ranging) survey of the Forest of Dean.
The technique used laser beams fired from an aeroplane to create a 3D record of the land surface, effectively removing the trees from the landscape.
Mr Hoyle said when he studied the data, he spotted an "extremely circular" feature, which he thought initially might be a World War Two gun emplacement.
After visiting the site, at a secret location near the village of Tidenham, he realised it was much older, dating to between 2,500 BC and 1,500 BC.

"It was very exciting. I was expecting to find quite a lot of new sites with the LiDAR, but nothing as interesting as this."
The ring cairn is about 25m (80ft) in diameter and made up of a 5m-wide (16ft) rubble bank, with at least 10 white limestone standing stones, each no more than 1m (3ft) high, standing on top.
Mr Hoyle said ring cairns were "common in upland areas, in places like Derbyshire, Northumberland and Wales" but this was the only known one in Gloucestershire.

"Nobody knows precisely what they were used for. Some have been found in association with burials, and often there appear to be residues of charcoal in places like this, suggesting rituals that involved fire," he added.
The discovery is featured in a new book by Mr Hoyle - Hidden Landscapes of the Forest of Dean.

The Egyptian mummy art of the Hellenic and Roman period was so true to life you wouldn't see anything like it again until the renaissance.

Frightening.

Comment by Stephen on October 21, 2019 at 8:32pm

“The ice caps melted, the waters rose up to 15 metres (50ft) in a single lifetime and Britain was cut off from Europe — for good.”

In a single lifetime wow.

I have to admit that my favourite time in Egyptian Mummy art is the Hellenic and Roman period

Neat posting, Stephen about the Egyptian coffins.

Egypt archaeologists find 20 ancient coffins near Luxor
Archaeologists have found more than 20 ancient wooden coffins near the Egyptian city of Luxor, the country's antiquities ministry says.
The coffins, whose brightly-coloured decorations are still visible, were uncovered at the Theban necropolis of Asasif, on the River Nile's west bank.
They were in two layers, with the ones on top across those below.
The ministry described the discovery as "one of the largest and most important" in recent years.
