This is Part 2 of Now you see it…Now you don’t.
This is a re-formatted article that was on my former website. It was part of a larger article on Oxford published in August 2008.
Here glow the lamps,
And teaspoons clatter to the cosy hum
Of scientific circles…
Authorities recently sanctioned the public release (through the Oxford Mail, on Isis Day, 17th July, 2008) of the astonishing news that a huge henge, measuring at least 150 metres diameter, had been discovered less than half a mile to the north of Carfax, at the centre of Oxford. The massive megalithic* site, far bigger than Stonehenge, had been realised, they claim, when builders were preparing land behind houses in St Giles for the new ‘Kendrew Quadrangle’ development by St John’s College.
*Not strictly ‘megalithic’, as far as anyone but the surely damned coveters know, until integral large stones have been reported.
