I agree. The surface stones will be like the tip of the iceberg -- I wouldn't mind betting that there are hundreds if not thousands more "bluestones" lurking in ancient deposits in valleys all over Wilts and Somerset. The surface ones around Stonehenge were collected up, because the builders had a job to do.

But why eighty (just for the job) and no more?


I feel like piggy in the middle here but if they do/did exist in the area and they were dug out of the ground because they were not on the surface then once the 80 odd were collected and no more were required why take more? Once the ground was levelled over that would be the end of it and the bluestones hidden.
