This is the largest of three circles in our lower field. The vegetation inside the circles is noticably different from the vegetation outside- thicker, lusher. So far as I know they've never been recorded or investigated.|
I favour them being the remains of barrows or round huts.
PS. Those are my sister and brother-in-law supplying the human scale.
If the vegetation is noticeably lusher within the circles, then maybe waste pits?
Could be worth digging into if that's the case.
Or possibly the site of an historic bonfire. My parents' house has a spot where we used to burn piles of fallen branches every year, and the vegetation is noticeably different there.
That's plausible. I hope it's not the answer because barrows are so much more romantic.
I've read about circles in the Fortean Times, but never saw any. Maybe England is just more Fortean than the US.
I think the majority of crop circles are man-made, but there's an element of doubt about some of them.
here its noticeably greener over the septic tank...
can you borrow some students and a sounder thing to see if there's anything worth digging for?
I'm thinking I should contact the County Archaeologist. I assume there is one.
that makes sense. Or Hay mows.
