Two, but both currently in the same place"?


And to suggest it as 'something new' is erroneous, as if it is a stone circle variant, it's barely a stone circle at all, a likely representation in stone of a wooden linteled circle.
To use that as an example of how there might suddenly appear a completely new tradition in portal tomb building is just typical misleading stuff, desperate connections attempted, typical self published, unreviewed fare.


I'm smiling to myself here as I had you down as the number one to stick the knife in as all of your previous posts to me have been. Nothing new there either is there. Try lightening up a bit and read the whole content before accusing me of being misleading. I'll await your order in due course :-)


I've completely lost track of what's going on here Roy. Is he attacking both of us?

If me: I was just saying some say the bluestones were a pre-existing circle (with lintels) so there may be one or possibly 2 such circles known. So how is that a bad thing to say?

If you: well, pointing out SH is unique in order to illustrate that lack of precedents don't invalidate your theory is a totally valid thing to say. So what all the bitter and twisted stuff is all about Gawd knows.
