youwereswimmingwithsharks said:I feel like most people don't get that you can like a story even if it has ugly moments. It doesn't mean we love the ugly moments, but we have to admit they make it much more accurate (in this case). Loving Outlander doesn't mean we're okay with domestic violence (or rape, or murder, etc.), it means we get that it was a reality back then. If we stop reading/watching everything with ugly scenes, the only thing left will be Teletubbies. What's the problem with portraying reality?
The Beaghmore Stone Circles on the south slopes of the Sperrin Mountains, in an area known as the Creggan, were discovered by accident during peat cutting in the 1940’s. It took four years of excavation to remove a thick layer of protective peat and to uncover no less than 1269 stones. The Stone Circles were built in the Bronze Age around 1600 BCE. Field walls, fireplaces and flint tools found at the site are suggesting that the site was in use since 2900 BCE.
