‘Side by Side’ revealed a clearing through to trees and beyond. Two large standing stones sit together in the foreground and there is a sense of peace and calm. At first, I felt this was a Level 1 decipher, revealing the current landscape, but this was unlikely as few trees currently stand in the area around Levant due to the extreme weather conditions. I therefore upgraded it to a Level 2 (historical visual data) sensing that it represented an historical viewpoint. Perhaps the people who erected and worshipped these stones, many of which lay scattered across the landscape here, would have seen such a place.
