Taking Paul Sinclair’s idea that ‘location is key’ the aim in this section of the Truth Proof website is to add to the connections to the multiple instances of high strangeness that Paul continues to gather through his own testimony and from the many sources and witnesses he accesses across the region of East and North Yorkshire.
These pages are a chance to dig deeper into the location of Star Carr. Let’s contemplate ideas of shamanic ritual, interconnected phenomena, ley lines, time and astral travel, poetry, art, remote viewing, dowsing, and archaeology to proposed possible keys to unlocking truths.
Archaeology - What the Science Tells Us In East Yorkshire the Vale of Pickering offers a broad sweep of lush green fields and meadows situated between the high cliffs that face the North Sea and the Yorkshire Wolds. Between 10,000 BCE to 8,000 BCE (the Mesolithic era) a vast lake dominated the area. From the 1940’s onwards archaeological digs near the village of Flixton have revealed one of Europe’s oldest human settlements known as Star Carr.
Peculiar amongst the finds is a vast horde of animal remains, the closer inspection of which revealed 21 intact deer frontlets and fragments of antlers were found intact.
This suggested that Star Carr was no ordinary site of butchery or bi-product of human subsistence but rather a ritualistic centre.
The site was discovered in 1947 when John Moore, an amateur archaeologist detected some flints. A year later in 1948, Professor Grahame Clark of University of Cambridge conducted the first major dig. The University of York has been engaged in brilliant archaeological research since they conducted their first dig in the 2000’s.
I respect science and the work of academics but, perhaps because I am first and foremost an artist, I have, over the years, come to know that science or the academic don’t always give us the full picture or give us a wholly accurate perspective on matters.
At the end of the day Archaeology is governed by interpretation and I know that interpretation is a slippery thing. There are of course many interpretations and with that many archaeologies.
