Re: Similarities elsewhere?

The 1824 report says the capstone was resting on 5 uprights, so presumably the backstone (whether original or not) was one of them.

It still seems that the current set-up could be reached by shifts and falls over millennia (partly while under cover/semi-cover of a mound). Then you don't need a theory of major re-arrangement to get the shape we have now.
