A new study suggests their pig roasts weren’t just neighborhood events, either—chemical evidence in the pig bones make a case that these epic barbeques forged alliances and brought together people from across the British Isles.


interesting to me to think of a bunch of Ethelreds and Goodgolfs hanging out, plotting, etc.

wonder if they were domesticated swine or feral.


The big melting pot of pork suggested something fascinating—that these feasts were pan-Britain occasions. “These gatherings could be seen as the first united cultural events of our island, with people from all corners of Britain descending on the areas around Stonehenge to feast on food that had been specially reared and transported from their homes,” Richard Madgwick of Cardiff University, lead author of the paper, says in a press release.


wonder if they had swordfights or an oxcart race or some similar entertainment.

maybe its just me but I think this sort of thing is way interesting. if we never get time travel maybe we can at least get a time scope and observe some of this stuff.

So folks didn't go there to celebrate the equinox nor solstice, but rather for a BBQ competition?
Hmmmmmm.

Lol. Kinda the opposite of what the Druids are. Maybe someone needs to have Pigfest at Stonehenge 2020 t shirts made.

I thought the idea that stonehenge was used by druids was already debunked? As the monument is far older than the druidic movement?

Sounds like a great party there. Sort of like Woodstock I bet. I wonder what kind of psychotropic chemistry they used those days around there? Probably some sort of mead and shrooms. I would bet the cover charge was paid in firewood those days. Others who brought the booze, food, and drugs probably got in free of charge.

Nostalgia is kicking in.

Was referring to modern Druids....who are mostly vegan hippies. At least as far as i can discern. It would be like finding out Jesus was born in a brothel.

Oh yeah. Those modern druids are kind of silly I think, but who am I to speak when I think Thelema is cool. :p

Pig roasts there make me think of Asterix. Let's have a boar roast mmm
