My thinking was you'd have your sword on the danger side, i.e. the outside of the henge. However, if you go clockwise it'll be on the inside. But me too, left handed and go round anticlockwise, so the same.

Is this valid psychological research - that the threat at Avebury and other circles was from the inside? Is the sacred direction the safe direction?

I apologise for the waste of electrons.

Ah, I see, I see..

Yes, after our (or your) extensive research, it obviously means the threat was from the inside, and "Sacred direction - Safe direction" is a nice catchy title for the resulting paper.

A waste of electrons it is not.

Mentioning Ritchie Blackmores hair in a discussion about Sacred directions, however, absolutely is, so I am putting my feet up for the evening on that basis. It's been a long day.

ps. I now have images of the "Sacred games of Avebury", spectators on the bank, the 'warriors' proceeding down the avenues, pigs running about in all directions and a bloke selling bacon butties next to the Swindon Stone.
