Does anyone have another word or expression for the term "Altar" that more clearly reflects its Pagan roots as the term has been so widely used by other religons?
Julian Cope uses this quote for the frontispiece of The Megalithic European:
"And the Elders sat on rough hewn stones
Within a sacred circle,
And held in their hands the sceptral rods
Of the loud proclaiming Heralds,
On receiving which they then rose from the seats,
And in alternate order gave good judgement"
