We recieved the following e-mail from one of our readers:

Years ago on a TV show (sorry no idea what it was) I thought I remembered
that "NASA's Deep Core Imaging Satelite" picked up the image of a matching
lady/goddess on a hill beside the Giant. She had been allowed to grow back
and was not visible without the use of this satelite.
Have you ever heard of this?
If so would you know if there are images to be found?

I've tried everything I can think of for many years to
find this again and have come up with nothing. I wonder where I ever heard
the story.

If you have any ideas, links, connections, places to try please let me

Does anybody remember the program, or have any other information about this?

A quick note

According to Derek and Julia Parker (Atlas of the Supernatural) remains of both a feminine figure and a  Uffington-like horse have been found near the Rude Man.
This book is VERY vague and does not go beyond a passing mention so take it with due acution.

PS: the book was printed in 1990 so it shows that the long vanished figures were known before.


"Louhi spoke in riddled tones of three things to achieve: find and catch the Devil's Moose and bring it here to me. Seize the Stallion born of Fire, harness the Golden Horse. He captured and bound the Moose, he tamed the Golden Horse. Still there remained one final task: hunt for the Bird from the Stream of Death"

After a bit of digging

After a bit of digging around, I've not come across any mentions in my archaeology books, though I don't have too much on that part of England, however I've been pointed in the direction of the following website which mentions that students in 1997 created a lady friend for the giant which was short lived. I think that there would have been more mentions and follow up work if there had been signs of other figures.

Wiki gives a good overview of our current knowledge of the monument, however we should remember that there is no evidence of it existing pre-17th century. I'm not sure how the Deep Core Imaging satellite works, but I really can't see how it would uncover a hill figure any better than conventional aerial photography. Even a look on Google Earth doesn't show any signs of any other figure.
