I was interested in watching this "Time Team" programme: http://www.channel4.com/programmes/time ... od#3376600
This particular episode studies the Dorset Ridgeway (Kate & Corwen's turf) and the Time Team are introduced to the archaeological technique of phenomenology. As I understand it, this is all about using the context of the landscape, looking around, and using an active imagination / visualisation coupled with common-sense, to gain a better understanding of historical sites.
As an enthusiastic amateur antiquarian, it dawns on me that this is exactly what I've been doing in visiting ancient sites. Walking the land, sitting and musing, meditating on a sacred site etc. It all has scientific legitimacy, and a big fancy name!!!! And even critical academic papers: http://lepo.it.da.ut.ee/~cect/teoreetil ... ng2006.pdf
The toolkit offered by our Druidry just gets more mainstream all the time!!!!
