Description

Sacred Sites - Avebury & South Cadbury

There's a simple rule - tourists go to Stonehenge and British people go to Avebury. Most British people agree that Avebury is far better then Stonehenge. Not for it's complexity, but simply because it has a deeper spiritual feel to it. Avebury is also much older than Stonehenge and lacks the tightly controlled way in which it can be viewed - no one can go near the stones at Stonehenge but in Avebury one is free to get a real feel of the place. If you're coming to Britain for a brief visit, Avebury is the place to see. Surrounded by other sites including Silbury Hill and West Kennet Long Barrow, Avebury is steeped in history and mystery. I could write about it all day but I won't! This programme looks at how and why it was built, and what attracts people to the site, and more modern changes like the church built next to the circle.
South Cadbury. This programme looks at the many churches in the local villages and the impact of the Black Death. The hill fort, also known as Cadbury Camp, is five thousand years old and was used as a strategic defence post and occupied for over two thousand years by different groups
