Long barrows were established by the earliest farmers and architects of the British Isles around 5,500 years ago. They were spaces for the honouring of those who had died, as well as a forum for the civic and creative life of stone age people.

The UK has witnessed a revival in the crafting of barrows designed to fit the 21st Century, with five barrows having been built across England since 2014, with the first being at All Cannings.  The new barrow at Soulton was recently completed -- just in time for the 2020 Winter Solstice to which it is aligned.

This is a panel discussion which intends to:

  • make a record of the journey to completing the new monument at Soulton,
  • explore the ideas involved, from archeology to culture
  • document the experiences shared and the ways in which the project has grown from
