Sacred area

La Hougue Bie entrance
Every spring and autumn crowd gather to watch the equinox

The large flat rock at the back of the passage is raised up from the floor denoting a more sacred area.

"It is almost like a modern day church. The further back you go the more sacred and spiritual it gets and less people have access to it."

"There is a little terminal cell at the back, which may have housed an important object or person.

"The equinox sunrise concentrates initially in that area. This shaft of light perhaps symbolises bringing in new energy. It is all about rebirth and contact with the dead."

"Anyone who experiences it knows they have witnessed something really special. To think 6000 years ago there would have been people in here experiencing the same thing," Olga explained.

Again Olga can only hazard an educated guess as to the meaning of the rituals that went on all those thousands of years ago.

"We know there were little seeds placed on the cairn stones, so it may have been a plea to the gods for a good harvest," she said.
