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.



Youtube link ?


Frayed knot Geoff. Nobody would need to buy the book if I did that. I said earlier it wasn't for sale. Still good though :-)



Not quoit then?


Didn't realise you could speak the Cornish Lingo VBB. You'll be given the keys to Launceston next. Yes Launceston, that's the towne that had an earthquake just before Christmas that caused £10m worth of improvements :-)
