Dr Serena Trowbridge – Stories of the Stones

Wednesday 15 May, 4:00pm-5:00pm
Fowey Town Hall

Britain’s landscape contains many stone circles, especially in Cornwall, Wales and Scotland. Their original purpose remains mysterious despite extensive archaeological investigation, and perhaps it is their obscurity which makes them so fascinating. Over the centuries they have inspired many legends, most famously of girls turned to stone for dancing on a holy day, or stones which walk to a river and drink. The stories told of the stones reflect the changing interests and concerns of society and tell us more about our culture than they do about the sites themselves. This talk will explore a few of these stories of the stones, from the Merry Maidens to Stonehenge, and consider the significance of mythmaking and storytelling.
