When did Stonehenge become a national monument?

文字稿

He’s got one. She’s getting hers. She’s not leaving without one – photographs, millions of them, taken of this extraordinary monument.

他拍了一張。她正在拍。她走之前也得留個影。人們在這處非凡的遺址前拍下了數以百萬計張照片。

And now, this monument wants yours.

而現在,這處遺址需要你拍下的照片。

Sue Lane was just four when she walked among the stones in 1966 and also came back to the same place, whilst Jane Vellender was a little girl in the late 1960s, on a visit from Bristol. And today she came back in person as well, to the very same stone: all to join a new project sharing personal memories of Stonehenge, 100 years after the site was gifted to the nation.

蘇·萊恩在1966年徜徉於這些石頭之間,那時她年僅四歲,而她又回到了同一地點拍照;而簡·維蘭德在1960年代晚期是一個從布里斯托來這裡參觀的小姑娘。而今天,她也親自回來,在當年的那塊石頭前留影:這些人想在巨石陣被贈予英國的一百年後,通過參與一個新項目來分享和該遺址有關的個人回憶。

Jane Vellender, tourist
I was about five and I vividly remember coming here and being wowed by how big the stones were and how old, even though I was only little.

簡·維蘭德 遊客
“當時我只有五歲左右,而我還鮮明地記得來到這裡被這些巨大和古老的石塊折服時的情形,儘管我當時還小。”

The project wants any photo, from anyone, from anywhere at Stonehenge. It’s to tell the story of the past 100 years by the people who have been here. This is Neolithic nostalgia.

該項目徵集在巨石陣拍下的任何照片,不論拍照的人是誰或來自哪裡。這是為了讓曾經拜訪此處的人們講述在過去一百年來有關巨石陣的故事。這完整呈現了人們對新石器時代的懷舊之情

Stonehenge has about one and a half million tourists a year – and everybody takes a photograph. With this new project, it doesn’t matter how old the photograph is, or whether the picture’s black and white or colour. The aim remains the same: to personalise this ancient monument.

每年來巨石陣參觀的遊客約有一百五十萬人,而每個人都會留影紀念。這個新項目要求:無論照片新舊、是黑白還是彩色,都沒關係。其目的不變:那就是這座古老的遺址變得人性化

Hundreds of photos have been uploaded, each one placed at the spot they were taken.

成百上千張照片已經被上傳到數位系統中,每一張都被放到拍照時所在的位置上。

Kate Davies, English Heritage
We want to make sure that there is an opportunity for people to share those special memories, and those stories of Stonehenge’s most recent history, so a digital photo album is a great way to create almost a national photo album of Stonehenge.

凱特·戴維斯 英格蘭遺產委員會
“我們想確保人們有機會分享那些特別的回憶,以及和巨石陣近期歷史有關的故事,所以製作數位相冊是用來創建巨石陣全國相冊的好方法。”

Archaeology meets photography in a unique digital album set in stone. 

考古學和攝影因一本 “刻入” 石碑的獨特數位相冊而相得益彰。

你知道嗎?

According to English Heritage, Stonehenge was built in stages: the first monument was an early henge monument, built about 5,000 years ago, and the unique stone circle was erected in the late Neolithic period about 2500 BC.

據英格蘭遺產委員會稱,巨石陣是分階段修建而成的:第一部分遺跡是早期的圓形石柱結構,建於約五千年前,而石柱上獨特的環狀石塊則是於新石器時代末期約公元前2500年建成的。

問題答案

Stonehenge was gifted to the nation 100 years ago.
