    It must be easy August
     
    Time enough to go online and get five front-row seats for next week's big European renaissance game at Goodison; to contribute to plans for various Greenbelt seminars; to write a link-list of people, places and publications for a colleague planning a sabbatical on a Celtic Christianity theme; to spend quality time with August's Fortean Times, and to snooze this afternoon whilst listening to Circulus. And an evening at a barbeque with friendly colleagues. Ah... it must be easy August. And we deserve it.

    The FT reviews Bob Trubshaw's latest book, Sacred Places: Prehistory and popular imagination. In which he asks why certain types of prehistoric places are thought of as sacred, and explores how the physical presence of such sacred sites is less important than what these places signify in 'the mindscapes' in we have created the idea of prehistoric sacred places. Because it's Bob Trubshaw it will be very good. I shall be onto Heart of Albion Press imminently to order my copy.
