As with the last episode, thoroughly enjoyable and possibly not long enough! Presumably the odd crackle during your voiceovers was the sound of your wood burner at full tilt?

Delighted to have discovered Robert Wyatt's 'The Sea Song' and the live Caravan - both incredible.

Catch you soon xxx

Hey man,
While listening to this podcast I was reading this:

I am fascinated. I understand you have interest in ancient places as well. This sort of dig site seems to throw the orthodoxy about the past to the wind.
"We do not know how a force large enough to construct, augment, and maintain such a substantial complex was mobilized and rewarded or fed in the conditions of pre-Neolithic society."
