Even though my fellow Britons jump to a contrived conclusion to explain the antics of our long lost forebears, painting them as a backward, blood-thirsty savage people, I think the picture of their basic day-to-day life might have been somewhat different.

The Romans during their occupation of Britain usually referred to the primordial Britons as a savage, barbarian nation because the Britons didn't employ the same lifestyle as them, even though the true extent of the Neolithic Britons achievements must have been uniquely different.

These were a peaceful people, whose tribes had come together under a mutual understanding, they gathered and formulated themselves into a network of kingdoms, free from the decimation and blood-letting the Roman empire endured. And it's this knowledge of mutual cohesion which gives us a more definitive understanding of basic life within the Kingdom. To retain that peaceful co-existence, they must have shared crops with one another, worked their cattle for the collective benefit of the whole community, not just the avarice and greed of the few.

No doubt tools were merely a means to an end and their craftsmanship and expertise was passed down from father to son, brother to brother, neighbour to neighbour, in a quintessential way of life. Quite simply it's the only way to stop the fighting. It's inconceivable to think 33 tribes could have existed in harmony without such a plan. If we explore the world around us today, we see mankind's exceptional greed, and pursuit of riches (oil), and how it drives his megalomania, his religious hated and selfish intolerance, which in turn forces him to commit some of the most foul acts imaginable. Acts which leave women widowed and children orphaned (9/11), whereas our early, Neolithic ancestors must have achieved something we can only look at with big jealous eyes and envy. A lush green paradise, where common sense and social understanding reached out with a common unity.

A nation of brothers and sisters who strive against the odds in the most basic circumstances to facilitate each other's survival. Not the heart ripping monsters who drain the blood of young virgins for some demanding god. In fact, in Britain before the Roman Empire, the chances are there was no God(s).

One only needs look at the symbolism around the world, the rock carving on Pyramids and obelisk, standing stones and discarded buildings and ask: Where are the symbols of the ancient Britons religious heritage? Why didn't the ancient Britons carve religious icons in their standing stones?

The obvious answer is: they didn't carve effigy into their stone columns because there was no effigy to carve, no pseudo-religious mumbo-jumbo, no down on your knees giving thanks for the controlled existence. Personally, I believe the rocks at Stonehenge and Avbury are functional and practical, not religious symbols or means of crop rotation time pieces. These stones would have stood as permanent posts, and skeletal shells for the rest of the building to go over and around.

At Avebury, the standing stones are not just placed in a circle, they also are placed as avenues which lead to and from the main circle stones. If my thinking is right, then I would guess the whole of Britain was joined together via a series of long avenues which criss-crossed the country, uniting the 33 tribes in enclosed passageways, where every ten or so yards a stone was placed and was then intersected with a wattle and daub panel, like some kind of modern trellis fence.

The benefit of this idea would be easily recognisable. Briton four thousand years ago was not as it is today. Back then packs of wolves roamed the countryside, as did bears and wild boar. Neatly panelled walkways would not only have provided excellent cover from marauding animals, but would have also stopped cattle and livestock from wandering in to the dense tree canopy forest and being lost forever when being transported from one village to the next. With the added advantage of always knowing where you're going, the idea seems more sensible than a barbarian people ripping one another to shreds. I believe these enclosed avenues would have remained in place until the Roman invasion, when a more post-invasion strategy would have been developed.
