Roc-aux-Sorciers is an Upper Paleolithic rock shelter site dating to the mid-Magdalenian cultural stage, ca 14,000 yBP, made famous by its relief wall carvings. The site is in the French commune of Angles-sur-l'Anglin, in Vienne. The name 'Sorcerers' Rock' with its suggestions of pagan rendez-vous, was applied to the site long before the wall-carvings were discovered.
The south-facing rock-shelter at the base of the slopes of the Douce, above the right bank of the Anglin, about 1.5 km (0.93 mi) above the village, is composed of two geologically distinct sections; below is the Abri Bourdois, a classic rock-shelter site beneath a slight overhang, and above is the Cave Taillebourg, a deeper vestibule. The two parts are separated by a zone that has not yet been excavated, kept in reserve. The site was classed a Monument Historique, 18 January 1955.
I was born in Folkestone, Kent, UK (People of Stone) in 1954 and was once Xanthippus (Yellow Horse).
Enter the Baron
It was no coincidence that I walked to to the matrix body of Samuel-François Lhéritier aged 20 in 1792 in such a place! Having just departed Colonel Robert Magaw (1738 - 1790). I was eager for more of the Revolution experiences I am a Rebel Spirit by nature!
Baron Samuel-François Lhéritier de Chézelles (French pronunciation: [samɥɛl fʁɑ̃swa leʁitje də ʃezɛl]; 6 August 1772 – 23 August 1829) was a French soldier who rose through the ranks during the French Revolutionary Wars and Napoleonic Wars, eventually gaining promotion to the military rank of Général de Division.
In Metz as the Flemish Knight Robert des Armoises (1380 - 1443), I was known as the Black Knight of Metz (Kellermann was from Metz no coincident).
