The lady in the photo is Kazz, King Arthur's life partner & priestess.
The gentleman in the background with the feather in his cap is the Arch Druid Of Avebury.


Several years ago, archaeologists dug up from Stonehenge the remains of what the pagan community call "the guardians".
The archaeologists pledged to study & carbon date the bones & then to rebury them in accordance with local, pagan & druid wishes.
The study showed that the skeleton in question lived on a high meat diet (unusual for the time), was several inches taller than average & had no "hard work" damage to his bones etc.
This confirmed Pagan belief that he was either from the hierarchy of the area, Priest Caste or the DESIGNER of Stonehenge.
Anyway, the team responsible for having the bones kept stretching out the date of return..until they hit the magic five year mark whereupon they don't have to ..and refused to return & rebury the bones.
They are now on display in the new visitors centre...... would we like our grandfathers or grandmothers dug up & put on display ?


Wednesday I attended the Protest with the pagan & Druid community to have the skeletons of Stonehenge taken from a display in a glass case & to be reburied once more.

It has happened with the Aboriginal people & Native Americans, so why not ourselves?

Let those at rest, stay at rest.

The protestors wore wode, druidic or traditional costume for the protest..as seen above.

Incidentally, the European court of human rights not long ago gave worshipping rights at Stonehenge for Pagan people at Equinoxes and Solstices.

I went for Solstice at the weekend & English heritage blocked off the ancient drove by ways (illegally), & have seperated the stones form each other giving a very strange and negative feel....quite upsetting actually :-(

English Heritage are fast earning their nickname of English Heretics.
