“Neolithic” Long Barrow Under Construction in England
Monday, March 24, 2014
ALL CANNINGS, ENGLAND—Developer Tim Daw of Wiltshire is building a “Neolithic” long barrow on his farmland and selling space in it for housing urns containing cremated ashes. “It’s turning out so much better than I could possible imagine. A lot of that is down to the stonemason, coming up with the idea of how to build it and insisting on doing it the proper way, using real traditional materials and methods. That’s paying off in spades, with the quality of it and the feel of the place,” Daw told BBC News.
