Surely you’re not suggesting the (original) builders would choose a less stable construction over a more stable one? We’re talking about a people who knew their materials and understood the properties and limitations of those materials inside out. The fact that the structures have survived so long is proof positive of that.

If anyone doubts Sanctuary's findings at Trethevy they should watch his latest DVD.


The comment had nothing to do with the stability of the structure but was in relation to how the portal tombs were not necessarily built with the aesthetics of moderns .
