SEAHENGE: A JOURNEY
In 1998, the discovery of Seahenge on the foreshore near Holme in North Norfolk caused great excitement. It was a circle of 55 split oak trunks, and at its centre - a huge oak stump, upside down. What was it for? A place where body and spirit meet? A mortuary? A site for sky-burials?
In their collaboration, Kevin Crossley-Holland’s poem approaches Seahenge along the lcknield Way and Peddar's Way. Andrew Rafferty’s images, taken along the ancient pathways, are often abstract, even expressionistic, as if you are catching a glimpse of the past through the frame of memory.
