Just listened to that Rhiannon, thanks - yes, reflective and interesting. I identified most with what the Pagan had to say as in North representing winter, security, hearth and home; East - growth and Spring; Summer - passion and vitality; and finally West - autumn and ageing. I was reminded of the number of prehistoric wedge tombs and small stone circles are on the west coast, particularly the south west coast of Ireland. And as has been said many times before, a circle doesn't face any direction and all directions.
Also smiled last week when one of the archaeologists on 'Digging for Britain' involved with the Avebury 'discovery' of a square apparently predating the stone circle referred to it as a 'square circle' - thereby solving the mathematical conundrum of squaring the circle.
