Did you not want to find out what the hole was made with before you published the book?


No. It matters little what made the hole or when, it's what happened afterwards that I am writing about Rhiannon. I believe it was the making of the hole that caused the capstone to slip, but it may not have been, it may have been something else but the end result was the same. Whatever, the re-arrangement of the stones would have taken place after the capstone slipped. It went from a totally supported capstone on all uprights to one just supported by the front closure and one rear angled side flanker IMO. In doing so it went to show how efficient the keying on that angled flanker was to sustain the immense downward force of the capstone.
