Mazes and Labyrinths

30 31 On the verge beside the B1363 from Dalby to Terrington in Yorkshire can be found the only turf version of the traditional sevencoil labyrinth left in the British Isles. The present cutting dates from the turn of the century. Labyrinths often go by the name of Troy and some local sleuthing soon uncovers the fact that the Welsh Caerdroia, meaning the walls or city of Troy can also be taken as Caer y troiau, which means The City of Turns. This classical labyrinth occurs across the ancient world, on Greek coins, and on walls from Mexico to Spain, India to Ireland. The oldest examples are from Minoan Crete, dating from around 2500BC, but you can see a recent one carved on a rock face by the sea at Tintagel in Cornwall.
