dolmen

tags: , ,

Megalithic    graves across Europe.   Populated, or not, 3  to 4 thousands  of years Before Christ.   While in Ireland I toured the Burren and stopped at the Paulnabrone dolmen.   Very atmospheric.   “The Modern Antiquarian” a fabulous book by Julian Cope lists megalithic sites throughout Europe.    The book is one of my most treasured possessions.   Websites selling the book under-detail the sheer volume and depth of research that Julian put into constructing this fabulous book.

Before the advent of anti-aging products these dolmen represented the celebration of aging,  death,  and life beyond.   Julian Cope is  one of the most  influential celebrity individuals in my formative years,   I blame him alone for a pair of black leather jeans being a main stay of my wardrobe and, or  course, my RAF orignial flight jacket.
