When re-arranged is an unknown I'm afraid. I believe it comes down to the hole in the Capstone because when that was pummelled through it was the likely cause of the Capstone slipping. Due to the positioning of the buttress that was offset from the opening it suggests it was still in use after the slippage otherwise it would have been placed centrally for maximum benefit.

Didn’t you once suggest that it may have been rearranged relatively recently (recently as in 500 years or so ago) maybe as a territorial marker (the hole possibly serving as a securing point for a banner or something). The hole in the capstone could provide the answer. Does it look like it was made using metal or stone tools?
