Close to Barbrook 1 stone circle is a reconstructed cairn, every time i go there i find more and more little bits of quartz and to be honest i don't mind that as they're usually hidden under the stones,

Possibly a bit anoraky, but quartz is often viewed as an important component of a site , being intentionally deposited in many cases .If the there hasn't been a record or excavation this might skew results .

It has been excavated, also the lower half of the cairn is quite well "sealed" with the stones having well packed soil between them and quite a lot of grass growth, the "offerings" are placed amongst the loose stones that make up the top third of the structure. : )
