Reciprocity with the Sovereign and Liminal Landscape

“The common people believe these obelisks to be men, transformed into stones by the magic of the Druids. The erect stones of which we speak, are the monuments of dead persons, whose ashes or bones are often found near them; sometimes in urns, and sometimes in stone-coffins wherein scales, hammers, pieces of weapons and other things have been often found (likely to take with them to the Otherworld), some of them very finely gilt or polished. Dogs also have been found buried with their masters.”

John Toland, A Critical History of the Celtic Religion and Learning, (1670-1722)
