I've been taking a good look at the stones, large or small, that go into the building of stone circles countrywide, but especially in East Cornwall where I now live. There always seems to be a similarity between the 'shape' of many of the granite stones (same angled tops, same flat tops, same equalateral triangular stones and the same 'pointy' unequal triangular stones etc. As, on the whole, they are not 'worked' stones supposedly, it suggests they come out of the ground like that. Do we have any geologists amongst us or whoever it is that understands how granite breaks up either in the ground, on the surface or when quarried? Some of the triangular stones I am finding are surely not all natural! All comments welcome please.
I'm allergic to being serious so the following will bring me out in a rash: there is little doubt that there is sufficient relationship between the upper shape of standing stones in the Avebury region and prevailing wind conditions to give rise to a study. It even seems there is evidence of (oops! nearly said too much there, I'll tell you offline). What would be useful would be a joint study from areas nationwide.
That's enough of that sort of talk... back to the banter!
Talking of banter...I was talking to a guy as I was walking off King Arthur's Downs last week and he'd been walking from another direction. He told me how knackered and hot he was and fancied a drink and how far was the nearest boozer so he could get a 'stiff one'. If I'd have known then what I know now I could have given him Goff's details :-)
