Prehistoric England: Uffington, Avebury & Stonehenge

Posted on April 12, 2006 by Holly Hayes
Last weekend we went on a wonderful driving tour of prehistoric England and it was such fun! Uffington White Horse The Uffington White Horse is not too far from Oxford and was our first stop. It is a giant stylized image of a horse on a hillside, made from scraping away the topsoil to reveal the underlying white chalk. It's difficult to see it all from the ground, but we still got a decent view of it from the nearby hill (it's in both of these photos - click to enlarge!): The White Horse dates from as early as 1000 BCE and is thought to be a tribal symbol or dedicated to a Celtic horse goddess...
