Jane Brayne is an illustrator who specialises
in depicting prehistoric scenes. She has brought alive many archaeological
projects with her evocative capturing of the finds and scenery. She researches
the subject matter and builds up an image using the pieces of the jigsaw
discovered by the archaeologists.
The Bestwall Quarries project's leaflet features
her work, including some images based on the pottery recreations which
Bill Crumbleholme was involved with. Indeed a very suspicicious character
can be seen lurking near the far kilns.
The AONB South Dorset Ridgeway Awareness project
leaflet cover boasts one of Jane's images of the "Bincombe Bumps"
barrow group. She talked at the early public meetings about how that image
was built up.
Wessex Archaeology called in Jane to provide the
media with something visual when the story broke of the discovery of the
Amesbury Archer (or more grandly the King of Stonehenge).
Bill for details.
