Update on the Priddy Circle Case
The archaeological community is looking for guidance from the case of a Mendip landowner into the penalty that may be imposed for damaging historic sites, a court was told.

Taunton Crown Court heard that Roger Maxwell Penny, 73, who admits destroying part of the Priddy Circles ancient earthworks, dating back to 3,000BC, would like to do what he can to put the damage right.

David Maunder, for English Heritage, proposed that the work be done or supervised using Mr Penny's resources "under the eye of English Heritage".

The judge said the simplest way was for Mr Penny to agree to permit English Heritage to enter his land for up to 18 months to carry out archaeological works to reinstate the area.

Hmmmm so we teh public pay for the work then?
