I can understand you being mighty surprised to be told that famous Stukeley quote was inappropriate. I would have thought it was the most appropriate quote in the history of the world for a thread titled Developments at Avebury. It's a puzzle.


Aye, and used by no less a luminary than Aubrey Burl in his Prehistoric Avebury (1979), rightly so by many others, and here by yours humbly for the last two years.

Speaking personally I’d like to see it etched into a brass plaque and screwed onto one of the many walls in Avebury that are made from the shattered sarsens of a once great monument - a constant reminder to all who pass by how our heritage can so easily be lost and damaged.


If you have a look you will see that the quote was used in reply to tjj's post to me and her post was about the toilets at the Barn.
