New stone erected in the Kennet Avenue!

...but only for the day. This is a nice little story -

“...the idea of the project was to show children that history did not start with the Romans, Anglo Saxons and Vikings, as history books sometimes depict, but much earlier with the people who built the great monuments like Avebury, Silbury Hill and Stonehenge more than 4,000 years ago.

“Under Mrs Swanton’s guidance children from St Mary’s Roman Catholic Primary School in Swindon built an exact replica of one of the buried stones in the Kennett Avenue and used their paper-covered chicken wire “stone” to fill in one of the gaps in the avenue – but just for one day.”
