Silbury Hill Reviews

He is therefore made by people. In This area you can see more from antiquity like the old village, surrounded by a Stone Circle and West Kenneth Long Borrow, a tomb from our Dolmen Mountain-time. Nice hiking area too.
My what a size it is, having in the past only seen it from a distance. It is amazing that in the past, without mechanical tools, how such a structure could have been built. more »
Had a look around Silbury Hill today the 29th of August 2018,this is one of Wiltshire’s many ancient monuments which can be seen in this very historic county.It’s the largest man made mound in Europe,it’s the size of a small pyramid and was completed around 2400BC.The mystery is no one knows why it was built as they dug down from the top,tunnelled in from the side to the centre and nothing of significance was found to entirely explain why it was created.So to this day it still remains a complete mystery.It must have taken ancient man ages to construct,it is said that it took around 500men some 15 years to complete.It stands at approximately 131ft high and covers 5 acres,it’s quite some structure to look at.Maybe one day with all this new technology that is evolving they might discover its mystery.Wouldn’t that be marvellous....👍
Very important spot in the area to understand the history of Somerset and Britain heritage.
