Prehistoric – Grime’s or Day Graves – Illustration Friday
Prehistoric was the theme for Illustration Friday this week. I started looking for poems with prehistoric themes and came across a poet and author who is both local and new to me; called Victor Tapner. I found his collection, called Flatlands and in particular one poem called Day Graves, which conjures up the images of prehistoric flint miners in places such as Grime’s Graves. On these foggy, snowy East Anglian days we have had, you can find yourself out of touch with the modern world. However, I’m glad not to be my little Stig of the Dump character napping flints in the flatlands.
