A barren, rolling landscape and a ring of stones. Evidence of mysterious ritual feasts and astrological signs. The true purpose of the site long forgotten.
It’s an image that conjures up ancient Celtic druids on the English heath, but ring sites aren’t unique to the early cultures of the English Isles. The Turkana Basin has several “pillar sites” and these monumental works and their more familiar European companions offer insight into cultural and community dynamics of the Turkana Basin when both were in dramatic flux.
