Sacred Sites of Ancient Keltia
Audio Visual Presentation by Jenny Deupree
A magical journey to the stone circles, mounds, and holy wells of Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Cornwall and Brittany
Sacred Sites is an audio-visual presentation of places that have been sacred since the Neolithic Age. They are organized according to the four elements: Earth, Air, Fire and Water: Earth mounds, stone circles, fire mountains, holy wells. The presentation includes images, music and commentary. It takes 30 minutes. Afterward there is another half hour when people can ask questions, and we can look again at specific sites.
In this audio-visual presentation we will travel to Stonehenge on Salisbury Plain, to the circle of Callanish in the outer Hebrides, to the Cairn of Queen Maeve on the west coast of Ireland. We will see stone circles in Wales and Cornwall, holy wells in Brittany and Wales.
The creator and presenter of Sacred Sites is Jenny Deupree. She has a degree in Astronomy from Wellesley College, and first saw Stonehenge in 1964. Since then she has travelled extensively in Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Cornwall and Brittany. In this presentation she talks about the astronomy of Neolithic times, which is much more accurate than we realize. She has also written a book, The Feminine of History is Mystery, which describes journeys to the sites, both real and imaginative.

Lucy Golden, who saw Sacred Sites in 2012, had this to say: “I was entranced by Jenny Deupree’s multi-media presentation of Sacred Sites of Ancient Keltia. I expected to see an interesting slide-show, but it was so much more. Jenny’s slides are very interesting, as well as beautiful, and she is a fount of knowledge on the subject of Celtic culture and history. Her presentation takes the viewer to a different level, however. Her use of music and prose create a mesmerizing event, and leaves the viewer with a sense of wonder at the depth of life and knowledge that preceded our culture.”
