Stone circles have been show to have plenty "left in them " . Often the cirle is the last architectural event after depositions of human/animal remains .An obviious example is Stonehenge where the erection of the stones came long after the creation of a ditch and banked enclosed cremation cemetery .
It's pretty obvious many archaeologists actually do like them .Any quotes from any saying they don't ?
Stuff from all periods pre and post circle erection are routinely found .
