and when they do find stuff it's from a different age [romans liked leaving coins] to when the circle was built,


A recent example of archaeologists from Reading Uni spending 12 days in Scotland excavating a stone circle that has evidence of previous use prior to the erection of the stones and also producing new finds over and above those found from the previous dig .

Croft moraig isn't a typical stone circle in any way at all, it may even be a very flash cairn, it's got a horseshoe within a circle, i thought it was a very strange place, i was a bit disappointed by the place, but killin stone circle more than made up for that.


The monument at Croft Moraig isn't a typical stone circle but the earlier monument prior to the erection of the horseshoe was and still is a stone circle .It still attracts the attention of archaeologists who manage to discover pre Roman "stuff" despite the large amounts previously discovered including evidence of activity at the site pre -erection of the monoliths .
