Whilst standing in awe yesterday at the size of the Rudston monolith, what better stone to meet then on Valentine's day? It struck me that Stukeley's Obelisk stone, destroyed all those years ago, would have been somewhat similar, its height I think 21 feet, the theory that you find on the Avebury Web is that it paired with a female stone, presumably for a mating ceremony via a shadow....

So perhaps the Rudston Monolith and the Obelisk stone are/were phallic symbols? There doesn't seem to be any evidence that there was another different shaped stone by the Rudston one - as in Avebury. But why not indeed - its as good a theory as any. And the paired stones on the West Kennett Avenue have been said to represent male and female too.
