EDITORS COMMENTS
1. Title: Prehistoric Fort Earthwork at Chanctonbury Ring, Sussex, England. This evocative image captures the enigmatic allure of Chanctonbury Ring, an ancient hillfort located in the picturesque village of Washington near Steyning in West Sussex, England. Dating back to the Iron Age, around 2500-1500 BC, this prehistoric earthwork is believed to have served as a defensive stronghold and a sacred site for our ancestors. The circular fortification, approximately 350 meters in diameter, is surrounded by a double ditch and an outer bank, with an entrance on the eastern side. The striking silhouette of the earthwork against the backdrop of the Sussex Downs has captivated the imagination of generations. The site has been the subject of numerous legends and folklore, with some believing it to be the home of the Devil or a gathering place for witches. Others suggest that it was used as a celestial observatory, with the alignment of the entrance and the solstices indicating astronomical significance. Despite its ancient origins, Chanctonbury Ring remains an intriguing and popular destination for visitors, offering a glimpse into the rich history and culture of our prehistoric past. The site is now in the care of English Heritage and is open to the public, allowing us to explore and learn from the remnants of this fascinating ancient monument. This photograph, taken from a distance, showcases the impressive scale and beauty of Chanctonbury Ring, inviting us to ponder the mysteries of the past and the enduring allure of our ancient heritage.
