Episode 8 - up on Chanctonbury Ring

Chanctonbury Ring - a mysterious landmark which has caught the imagination of people going back thousands of years. A lurking spot for the Devil, Julius Caesar, Saxon ghosts, World War 2 bombs, Morris Dancers, the Great Beast Aleister Crowley, Victorian picnics and almost anything else you could imagine.. Justin Hopper's book Old Weird Albion covers Chanctonbury and other magic-infused sites along the South Downs Way: http://www.pennedinthemargins.co.uk/index.php/2017/09/the-old-weird-albion/ Justin and Sharron Kraus released the album Chanctonbury Rings in 2018: https://ghostbox.greedbag.com/buy/chanctonbury-rings-0/ Jacqueline Simpson has written several books, but a good place to start is her book Folklore of Sussex: https://www.thehistorypress.co.uk/publication/folklore-of-sussex/9780752499994/ The rest of the music in this episode comes from Adrien Rhodes, who I have to say a huge thank you too for providing the textures and ambience for Monument.

Episode 5 - The Midsummer Tree

This old oak tree standing at the foot of the South Downs in Southern England has a strange tale of skeletons rising up from its roots at midnight on Midsummers Eve. I traced the story back to its origins and also learn about the power of stories to affect a place. There is music in this episode from Crayola Lectern: https://www.crayolalectern.com The rest of the music is provided kindly by Adrien Rhodes. If you'd like a copy of the Monument Zine, which develops the theme of Trees as markers of place, crime and culture then please visit the Monument Podcast website: https://monumentpodcast.com/shop.html You can also find an animation I've made about the story, and additional material related to the Broadwater Oak.
