I am really not sure this is a good idea when I have Project Fenbury to finish. I have been mulling over an idea for a new world for a while. I did promise hubby I would take a bit of break from building but I do so want to do something with this idea. So I have started playing around in CAW.
I posted this in my Project Fenbury thread.
The county which has inspired the new world of Throxton Deverill is Wiltshire. Where I hear you ask. Well it is a land locked county in the south west of England. The top half skirts the Cotwolds and is a fairly bland mixture of rural and light industry. The bottom half includes a large area known as Salisbury Plain. Dotted around the edge of the Plain are a number of ancient monuments. It is some these I am seeking to represent in the new world.
Bearing in mind I am currently levelling ground and laying out road maps, here are some very early pics of what I have in mind.
The landscapes round these monuments is quite stark. It is believed this was done deliberately by the ancients, as the whole area would have been densely wooded when these monuments were constructed. It just goes to show that our ancestors had a lot more skills than we give them credit for. Up close then these monuments are awe inspiring. Little is really known about them.
The name Throxton Deverill does not exist. Deverill refers to places which are on the river in the Wyley valley. There is a Thruxton but that is in Hampshire. Hubby said I should think of a name which suggest age and history so here it is.
