3. The Ancestors
Recorded on location in Asturias, Cantabria and Castilla y Leon in northern Spain: join us, Colin Williams and Ian Rowlands, as we look at how our ancestors approached death, life and spirit, through our exploration of ancient sites and the manner in which they are located in the landscape.
These sites provoked some lasting emotions and questions in us: our place in time and bones of the land; what is the import of posterity; our relationship with our far-distant ancestors; their relationship to the creatures they shared their world with; and their relationship to the rituals, spirits and places that were of such importance to them.
