Firstly an apology for the picture quality. I decided to travel light with just the Sony Cybershot but it went flat on me and we had to resort to the mobile phone camera. That'll teach me!
Anyway - not much to say so on with the pictures
Plenty of live music to get the visitors dancing. "Reckless" were playing when this was taken.
* I've been subsequently told that this is actually a display of Anglo Saxon medicines - sorry Pamela!
Some demonstrations of traditional crafts. This one was flint knapping. Flint is all over the hillside so he had plenty of raw material to work with. He was making some lovely spear and arrow heads.
Butser is known for its burning of the wicker man - so here he is. All that is missing is Edward Woodward or we could be on Summerisle.
Wishes could be written on pieces of paper and tied to the wicker man to be carried up with the flames.
He was stuffed with straw to help him burn - you can see some of it here.
And the moment we'd all waited for. The raffle was drawn and the winner was allowed to light the sacrificial man. Here the blaze is just starting to get hold of his legs.
Now fully ablaze - you can almost see all those wishes being released!
I think a great evening was had by all.
