Well of course, finding some would be a huge boost to your theory. But for now, the fact that lots of stray sarsens have been found but no bluestones doesn't do much for it.

You have every right to be sceptical, Nigel, until something spectacular is found on Salisbury Plain which demonstrably escaped the attention of the Stonehenge builders. But there are bits and pieces of "bluestone" all over the place, as I keep on saying...... and yes, there are erratics from South Wales in many places in the SW Peninsula, as described on p 118 - 122 of my book.
