I've been to Callanish and there's peat everywhere. If you look at early postcards of the place you can even see the 'peat-line' on the stones. But it's the only stone circle I can think of that was buried. I know some Avebury stones were buried, but they were in trenches dug. But this Wroxeter, a whole city is three foot under the fields I Shropshire! (and it's still buried!).

If that kind of dirt and soil coverage is considered normal, then there must be *thousands* of stone circles covered up. Know what I mean?
