Writing on his observations at Avebury and Stonehenge, John Aburey wrote, "I have brought (them) from an inner darkness to a thin Mist." Aubrey was the first to look at Avebury and Stonehenge with a 'modern' eye - his work was to influence William Stukeley, some twenty-thirty years later, and generations of archaeologists and antiquarians ever since.
