Magic Roundabout

It was, of course, bitterly cold. But I'd managed to wrangle the participation of cult British film director Barney Platts-Mills (http://www.platts-mills.com/) who took up the selection of some Roman masonry from his collection culled from nearby fields with wry amusement.

I added some of the local flint, and its collection of snails that seemed keen to be along for the ride - perhaps they identified with the shape of the glyph?

Google's co-ordinates dropped the pin on a small roundabout, joined by Saxon Way and linked to a larger roundabout (named for Churchill): it seemed suitable, given that the road system is a modern kind of glyph...

Once we got there, it was clear that this roundabout was in need of some magic: maybe the first two stones would start something?

A quick photograph and we were done, and heading back to a blazing fire surrounded by art from an earlier age.
