One does get the feeling, however, that Stonehenge gets all this attention, research etc precisely because it is an easy option for archaeologists?

Carol makes a fundamental point for me... who's making it their labour of love to research, investigate... PROTECT... those sites upon cold, windy hillsides in the middle of nowhere, those sites left to the whims of landowners whether they are trampled to pieces by livestock or not?

For me it is these places where the real human story of our ancestors was played out. Not a showpiece like Stonehenge where, presumably, people would have come to see and be seen... in other words adopt a false persona? But why bother when Stonehenge is such an easy commute to the office.. when you can simply jump everybody else's train?
