You are so lucky to be there uncovering these stones, and that other favourite of mine, which in some way ties up with the new Avebury discovery.
You are so lucky Roy to be living within a 'stone's throw' ;) of all these megalithic wonders and to take such a deep and abiding interest in them.

Hi Moss
Yes I am a very lucky person as you say just to live so close to the moor and to have been given the opportunity to work alongside archaeologists and to be trusted enough to undertake my own work along with my team. Very lucky indeed - but we have earned our stripes!
The Avebury 'square circle' is very interesting as it does, as you suggest, introduce thoughts of King Arthur's Hall and its rectangular 'stone circle'.
I am hoping that the earlier work we carried out at the hall will now be extended after our discovery.
