Now imagine Zennor as it was in the old drawing with wooden/stone lids to both chambers below the stone capstone, the angled stone inside Zennor was made to have something resting on it because the stones around it are shaped and positioned to hold something in place [it's very clever], it all could be done in stone that's gone as well, i've seen pieces like what you'd need on the tors as well, it's all there to hold them in place, if you saw it you'd love it, wood or stone the shaped stones are certainly there to hold something that's now long gone, and it would seal the chamber below the main capstone, the shape and position of the stones and what it would do if you put a stone or wood there [seal the chamber] make it very highly likely that it's meant all right, and it can only happen if the old drawings are right, which is interesting:@}
