Slaughter Bridge Between Tintagel and pretty Camelford in north Cornwall, the village of Slaughter Bridge is thought to be the location of Camlann, the site of Arthur's final battle, according to Geoffrey of Monmouth. A 6th century memorial stone – known as King Arthur's Stone – can be found close to the village, as can the Arthurian Centre (www.arthur-online.co.uk), which contains a collection of illustrations, texts and paintings celebrating the legend.
At Craig y Ddinas, the great rock in the far western corner of Rhondda Cynon Taf, a great treasure lies hidden underground, guarded by a company of knights who have slept in the treasure chamber for many centuries. According to ancient stories, the knights are followers of either King Arthur or of the 14th century Welsh warrior Owain Lawgoch. They are destined to sleep until their country is in peril when they will rise again and lead their people to victory.

Sea Henge: Bronze Age timber circle found at Holme Next The Sea Norfolk. Thought to be constructed 2049BC
WHAT!!!!?!?!? Seahenge! The Holme timber circle discovered in 1998 was dubbed Seahenge (pictured) after Stonehenge in Wiltshire.
Holme Timber Circle (Seahenge), discovered on the beach at Holme, Norfolk in 1998. The circle of timber posts within the intertidal zone studied & was found to have been constructed in the spring/early summer of 2,049 BC, during the Early Bronze Age. Because of the perceived threat of damage & erosion from the sea a rescue excavation was undertaken & the structure was entirely excavated/removed to a location inland, despite controversy.

Cave Painting in Altamira, Spain www.greenglobaltravel.com #spain #cave #cavepainting #greenglobaltravel #travel #eco
Cave of Altamira, Spain (extinct steppe) Bison. The artists used charcoal, ochre or haematite, often diluting the pigments to produce variations in intensity and chiaroscuro. They exploited the natural contours in the cave walls to give their subjects a 3-D effect. Many other caves in N. Spain contain Paleolithic art, but none is as complex or expansive as this. The paintings span 20,000 years, the oldest is 35,600 yrs old.
Altamira is a cave in Spain famous for its Upper Paleolithic cave paintings featuring drawings and polychrome rock paintings of wild mammals and human hands. Its special relevance comes from the fact that it was the first cave in which prehistoric cave paintings were discovered. When the discovery was first made public in 1880, it led to a bitter public controversy between experts which continued into the early 20th century, as many of them did not believe prehistoric man had the intellectual capacity to produce any kind of artistic expression. The acknowledgement of the authenticity of the paintings, which finally came in 1902, changed forever the perception of prehistoric human beings.

The cave contains jaw-dropping, well-preserved polychrome prehistoric cave paintings painted some 13,000-to-35,000 years ago,. Discovered in 1868 . Altamira is located in Cantabria, Spain and is a World Heritage site managed by UNESCO.

Avalon Camelot King Arthur: Trevethy Quoit, also known as #King #Arthur's Quoit, is an impressive burial chamber in Cornwall. It stands over 15 feet and dates from the Bronze Age. The capstone is pierced by a hole, the purpose of which is unknown. A portion of the front entrance stone is also missing; this may have been cut to leave an entrance into the chamber. The whole structure may at one time have been covered with a mound of earth long since degraded by the changing seasons.

Explorers have long known there was more to the 887 statues on Easter Island some 2,000 miles west of Chile, than just the statue heads made famous in photographs. When most people think of the renowned monolithic statues, they think of the heads only. But in October 2011, the Easter Island Statue Project began its Season V expedition, revealing remarkable photos showing that the bodies of the statues go far deeper underground than just about anyone had imagined.
Isn't this amazing? Who knew that the Easter Island statues had full bodies!
Easter island heads have full bodies! http://www.lonelyplanet.com/chile/rapa-nui-easter-island Another bucket list place to visit
Who knew Easter Island Heads have bodies!? It’s generally accepted that the statues were made sometime between 1250 and 1500 AD. Revealing the bodies has also shown that the statues bear petroglyphs. Way cool.
