Avebury

38 39 The serpenTs heAd and other ideas William Stukeley thought that since the Sanctuary was found at the end of the Avenue, it had to represent the head of a huge serpent, an idea supported by writer Michael Dames, who adds that the Sanctuary probably represented the Candlemas point in a landscape fertility cycle. Renowned dowsers Hamish Miller and Paul Broadhurst found that the Sanctuary marks one of the crossing places of two enormous male and female earth energy currents which weave around the Michael line see page 6. Other authorities hold that the Sanctuary marks an arm of a huge pentagram set out in the landscape around Avebury, magically defining the positions of its elements. It is thought that three successive buildings stood here, each larger than the previous, the final one containing the inner stone circle. It may just have been a display of decorated poles, and never covered. The large stone circle at nearby Stanton Drew has also been found to have rings of postholes.
