Henges

Adena Henge in England

Henges are traditionally mounds that are produced by digging a circular trench; some are quite small in diameter, some are large.  Stones are added in the interior area at some henges.  Avebury, in England, is an excellent example of a large henge, with stones added to produce an impressive monument.  Underneath the mounds are sometimes burial chambers.  These were developed in the neolithic era, before the bronze age, and before the widespread use of metal, which coincided with more warlike encounters between people.  Peacehenge has deep roots in the tradition of naturalistic architecture designed to engender fellowship and exciting ritual spaces.   JT
