TESTS on teeth from a skeleton of a teenager found buried near Stonehenge suggest they came from someone who grew up around the Mediterranean Sea.

The remains of the youngster – estimated to have died 3,550 years – were found with a distinctive amber necklace.

The conclusions come from analysis of different forms of the elements oxygen and strontium in the skeleton’s tooth enamel.
The teenager, known to archaeologists as the boy with the amber necklace, was found in 2005 about 5km south east of Stonehenge on Boscombe Down.
It was discovered next to a Bronze Age burial mound while roadworks were being carried out.
The findings indicate that a diverse range of people who came to Stonehenge from across Europe.
The findings will be discussed at a science symposium in London to mark the 175th anniversary of the British Geological Survey (BGS).

There’s just time (until the end of the month) to have your say on a formal British document to be submitted to UNESCO laying out, inter alia, how Stonehenge and Avebury ought to be managed.

See http://consult.wiltshire.gov.uk/portal/spatial_planning/consultee_documents/avebury_whs/ (see below)

(You can send your views direct to strategiclandscape@wiltshire.gov.uk )

We have our own views on the matter and here is the submission we have made:

“We note that: “The process of producing the Statement of OUV is not an opportunity to change or add to the reasons for inscription but a chance to distil them into a single document which will be key [to] the World Heritage Property’s protection. It is however possible to reflect challenges which have emerged over the last 25 years as well as changes in the management and protection context.“

In that case, we would like to say that a very obvious “change in the management and protection context“ which has emerged over the last 25 years is the fact that there has been a vast growth, due to the internet, in the number of people nationally and internationally who have a strong personal interest in the WHS and make frequent repeated visits to it and these now comprise the overwhelming preponderance of stakeholders – yet their needs are not addressed in a way which reflects that fact.

Even the introductory remarks of this consultation exercise betray a failure to recognise this reality: “This consultation provides an opportunity for local people, community groups and other organisations to comment on its Statement of Outstanding Universal Value”. The clear message is that unless you are local or a member of a community group or other organisation this consultation is not for you.
Involving and informing the local community or specially favoured groups first and leaving the wider community effectively ignored or disenfranchised is no longer appropriate. In our submission the need to rectify this matter goes to the very heart of both the management and protection of the World Heritage Site and a step-change is overdue.”

** Stonehenge, Avebury and Associated Sites World Heritage Property Statement of Outstanding Universal

This consultation is being hosted on behalf of the Stonehenge and Avebury Steering Committees of which Wiltshire Council is a member.

The Stonehenge, Avebury and Associated Sites World Heritage Property is one of Wiltshire’s greatest assets. This consultation provides an opportunity for local people, community groups and other organisations to comment on its Statement of Outstanding Universal Value. This Statement sets out formally why Stonehenge and Avebury are internationally important and what qualifies them to appear on the World Heritage List. It also sets out how requirements for management and protection of these qualities are being met.

This document is important for the protection of what makes Stonehenge and Avebury internationally significant. It defines the World Heritage Site’s Outstanding Universal Value (OUV). The United Kingdom signed up to protect the OUV of its World Heritage Sites when it ratified the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) Convention Concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage (1972).

The planning system has a very important role in this protection. Planning Circular 07/2009 states clearly the need to protect the Outstanding Universal Value of World Heritage Sites, while the guidance accompanying the new Planning Policy 5 on the Protection of the Historic Environment (2010) identifies the Statement of OUV as a critical resource for local planning authorities in plan-making and reaching decisions relating to the significance of World Heritage Sites. The document will also inform all management decisions which should prioritise the protection OUV as defined in the Statement. Your comments on the Statement of OUV could therefore contribute to protecting the very special qualities of Stonehenge and Avebury for this and future generations.

Since 2007 UNESCO has required a Statement OUV for all new World Heritage Properties. Stonehenge and Avebury were inscribed in 1986. All sites inscribed prior to 2007 are now required to submit retrospectively a Statement of OUV. This must be based on the original reasons for inscription set out in evaluation and decision documents from 1986. The process of producing the Statement of OUV is not an opportunity to change or add to the reasons for inscription but a chance to distil them into a single document which will be key the World Heritage Property’s protection. It is however possible to reflect challenges which have emerged over the last 25 years as well as changes in the management and protection context.

The original documents submitted to UNESCO during the nomination of the Stonehenge, Avebury and Associated Sites World Heritage Property in 1986 can be accessed via this link to the UNESCO website: http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/373/documents/

The Statement of OUV consists of four sections:

Statement of Significance

Statement of Integrity

Statement of Authenticity

Requirements for Management and Protection

The first section, the Statement of Significance, was agreed by UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee in 2008 after a period of consultation and sign off by the Stonehenge and Avebury Steering Groups representing key local and national stakeholders.

We are now due to submit the final three sections:

2. Statement of Integrity
3. Statement of Authenticity
4. Requirements for Management and Protection
We would appreciate your comments to assist us in shaping a robust and comprehensive document.

Please note comments are sought only on the last three sections: integrity, authenticity and management and protection. The first section, the Statement of Significance, has already been agreed by UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee.
Guidance on the UNESCO definitions of authenticity and integrity can be found the World Heritage Operational Guidelines (paras 79 – 89 and Annex 4) which can be found at http://whc.unesco.org/en/guidelines/ Further background information can be found in the management plans for the two halves of the World Heritage Site. They include sections summarising integrity and authenticity as well as the provisions for management and protection

Britain is littered with the remains of past lives, civilisations and cultures, many of which remain a source of mystery and conjecture. We may never know the exact reasons why these circles, standing stones, henges, hill-figures and monuments were erected or the peoples and belief systems that led them to complete some of these sometimes massive structures such as Silbury Hill and Stonehenge. These pages are an ongoing investigation into some of these ancient sites and landscapes with a view to gaining an understanding of the lives of the people who inhabited these islands more than 2000 years ago..
Obviously it is beyond the scope of this blog to hope to document every British prehistoric monument – there are estimated to be well over 1000 stone circles alone and the number of identified round barrows currently stands at over 10000. The sites I have included (currently about 350) are simply those that I have visited in England and Wales and cover a fair cross section of the pre-Roman sites in these countries, although the odd Roman remain is featured – I have yet to visit any sites in Scotland or Ireland. There are also several sites which have been included either because their age and purpose is unknown, or they may just be local curiosities. The areas of Lincolnshire, Humberside, Derbyshire and Yorkshire feature more pages than other regions, not because there are necessarily more ancient sites here but simply because they the closest to where I am based and therefore have received more frequent investigation than sites further afield.

British Stone Circle Tour Guide

>The new visitor centre planned for Stonehenge in Wiltshire could open its doors by 2013 if funding can be found, according to a report in the Salisbury Journal.

It was announced earlier this year that the coalition government would not be providing the £10m funding promised by the former Labour administration towards the centre’s £27m price tag.
Operators English Heritage (EH) nevertheless decided to proceed with the project, which has already received planning permission.

At a meeting of Wiltshire Council’s Amesbury Area Board on 2 September, EH project development manager Martin Harvey said: “We believe the project remains absolutely achievable.
“If all goes well with the remainder of this year, we believe we can still start work on the site in 2012 and open for business the following year.”
He added that EH have put in an application to the Heritage Lottery Fund, and is completing current plans in the meantime using money from previous sources.

Needless to say we will be keepng a very close eye on this and will advise as and when we reciev news.
