Which is why it must be important to work out whether it's manmade or not. If it is natural, it must have been there when the tomb was erected. Erosion of granite takes much, much longer than erosion of, say, a hole in a limestone-built chambered tomb would.

In which case, the hole wasn't "pummelled" through the capstone, thus leading to the tomb's partial collapse.
