Silbury Hill For the Record (with apologies)
Dec 28, 2020, 15:16
Apologies for bringing this up yet again and thanks for your patience. Even after all of the time that has elapsed I am still affected by events at Silbury in 2007 and I hope that putting a little of what happened 'on the record' will allow me to finally move on.

Below is part of an unsolicited account which I was given by a member of the project team at Silbury (too late to influence events unfortunately) and it provides a disturbing insight into some behaviours on site at the time (and unknown to me).

‘Right from the beginning [of the Silbury fieldwork] … I was very shocked and dismayed about the large amount of bad talk and malicious gossip [about Fachtna McAvoy] … spreading around on site.

During the following weeks [after Fachtna was dismissed from the Silbury site] I always wondered that I was never audited about this matter … during … [the] official investigation [into the allegations made against Fachtna] and also later on.’
