Plan of the stone circles of Avebury
Map study of the major standing stones at Avebury with contemporary roads, field boundaries and houses. A river or ditch is shown, [intended as the river Kennet?] to the west of the main village with the church of Avebury St James. Inscribed left: "AVEBURY" in pencil and with an inscription in ink above [by Henry Oldenburg]: "By Mr Awbrey july 8 1663". The map shows paired stones at each entrance to the site and a detail of a four-stoned cove features upper left above the main title inscription. This map, Aubrey's "plaine-table" study, is discussed in detail in the book Avebury reconsidered: from the 1660s to the 1990s, by Peter J Ucko et al (London, Unwin Hyman, 1991), pp.119-129 [where it is styled "Plan C"].
Original: pencil on paper. 1663
