....Maybe the size of Silbury fools people into treating it like a natural hill, made up of solid rock with a layer of soil over it, and as old and tough as the hills.

Cough...

“I take issue with calling Silbury a mound. It’s a structure goddamit – not a ‘mound’ or a ‘hill’ but a structure, the biggest in Europe until modern times, right here in our heartland, unique and worthy of our absolute respect.”

No-one frigging reads anything properly anymore – that’s why I despair sometimes. The ‘don’t climb’ message goes out over and over again but nothing ever gets done... jeeze...
