Dorset & Derbyshire Tribes: Past and Present

The River Avon, highway to Stonehenge in 2200BC and carrying the tribal genes which will spread over England, the Antipodes and North America.

The richest and oldest tribe ever now live in Christchurch, with that DNA, and ponder on their successful pagan forebears.  

With our ancestor Zuri, reflect on the changes in our lives over time. See this through plants as food and medicine, the introduction of farming, metals and new rituals, how all this changed the environment and continues to impact on our health and wellbeing.
