We are making and then erecting a 'spinal tap' sized (40cm) soft stonehenge at a music festival next weekend.
What is the best source for laying out our stonehenge? I saw a good article but now cannot find it again. We would like to start from first principles....i.e. stick and a shadow etc.
No, we do need to know how they moved the stones, where from or how they erected them - or even why - we have lots on that!
Just how to build a new one so it lines up with cardinal points.
I tempted to to get Barbie and Ken involved dragging cushions on rollers, however they are unfortunately a little tall......

Subject: [BRITARCH] CBA staff vacancies
The Council for British Archaeology
The Council for British Archaeology (CBA) is advertising vacancies for two
staff posts based within its secretariat in York, for a Listed Buildings
Caseworker for England (supported by English Heritage) and a Local
Heritage Coordinator (supported by the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation).
Listed Buildings Caseworker for England:
The main purpose of the job will be to develop and maintain a distinctive
role for the CBA as a national amenity society in the national heritage
protection and planning systems, to reflect its core mission of 'making
archaeology matter' and enabling wider public participation in discovering
and protecting the UK's historic environment. This will be achieved
1. co-ordinating and advising on heritage casework in England;
2. encouraging and supporting local community and amenity group
involvement as informed local advocates for the historic environment;
3. building capacity and skills in the voluntary community for championing
the historic environment in England, building on the existing historic
building volunteer and Agents network.
Local Heritage Coordinator:
The main purpose of this role is to develop a UK-wide network of effective
local advocates for the historic environment, focusing initially on
England, that is reasonably self-supporting at a local level, but which
feeds wider issues up to the CBA for national advocacy and action as
appropriate. The postholder will work closely with community-focused CBA
colleagues to integrate with and enhance our voluntary engagement
strategy. This will be achieved through:
1. Understanding the existing heritage service resources at a broad local
level and establishing successful strategies for local engagement
2. Building connections with other groups to share intelligence and
develop a Local Heritage Engagement Network (LHEN), working with the CBA
Groups' network and organisational members where appropriate
3. Developing a 'Local Heritage Engagement Toolkit' (LHET)
4. Developing the LHEN into a representative, strong and sustainable
network, using the LHET to engage local communities in advocating for, and
protecting their heritage.
How to apply

applications: midnight 31 August 2013.
