"I grew up believing that British history began with the Romans and that anything before didn't really count. The Flintstones and the Stone Age Raquel-Welch-on-a-pterodactyl movies conspired to create a vast and seemingly impenetrable prehistoric 'Then'. All of that changed the first time I saw Avebury and my quest became clear: to discover all that had been witheld from me." - Julian Cope, The Modern Antiquarian
