Labyrinth Video

It’s been the site of a number of classroom visits, but I figured you all might like to see the site of the labyrinth and the surrounding views.  As you can see, there are several big piles of dirt by the labyrinth, two of which were already there (and one of which was dumped on top of the southwest curve of the labyrinth).  Directly south is a storage shed which acts as the makeshift kitchen for our concessions stand at the ball field, and the ballfield is to the east.  North-north-west is the drainage pond and the home of our assistant headmaster.

Not a perfect place for archaeoastronomy, but not horrible, either.

  1. Way to claim the land; great sense of place there. Genius loci–I mean that in the Roman sense, spirit of place, that is.

    Here’s a little Alexander Pope summarizing it better:

    the following lines from Epistle IV, to Richard Boyle, Earl of Burlington:

    Consult the genius of the place in all;/That tells the waters or to rise, or fall;/Or helps th’ ambitious hill the heav’ns to scale,/Or scoops in circling theatres the vale;/Calls in the country, catches opening glades,/Joins willing woods, and varies shades from shades,/Now breaks, or now directs, th’ intending lines;/Paints as you plant, and, as you work, designs.
