Mick Harper wrote:The New Thesis was finally launched on an unsuspecting public at Bracknell Library this week. I was brilliant, the audience not. They were immensely suspicious of the idea that, say, St Michael's Mount is artificial. They also resisted the idea that the Megalithics (of Avebury c 3000 BC) could have anything to do with the St Michael Folk of c 500 AD.
However they took the whole mapping of the tin route from Burgh Island to Mont St Michel and the copper route from Portland Bill to St Malo in their stride. I rather suspect they did not realise it was all completely new and totally incompatible with the prevailing view of British pre-history.
Things will be slightly tweaked for the Wokingham Library talk of the 2nd May.
