The Sheep of Stonehenge

00:29 1080


On this warm day in the waning days of the winter, sheep casually graze, while a different sort of flock gathers round a bunch of large stones.

It's worth noting the trucks seen passing in the background. As of this writing, the route taken by vehicles across this landscape is a contentious issue, as it was when this footage was taken. Back then, the problem was of the inefficiency of the route taken by people going past, to, and from Stonehenge. A proposed tunnel, to be built underneath the site, promised to change all that, but it has also been met with fierce pushback from historians and Stonehenge enthusiasts, who point out the numerous dangers of tunneling through the British Isles' oldest anthropological site.
