A little scenario satisfying both camps...
Some bluestones had indeed been "abandoned" by glacial activity...someone thought they would look nice as additions(or starting points)to a large circle....Visitors came from far and wide to do whatever was done at this stone circle...One of these visitors noticed that similar rocks were natural features of where he had travelled from, so being of an enterprising bent proclaimed the stones as "special" and sold the mining rights to the circle builders, before retiring on the proceeds(it was his "Henge-fund") to set up a goat colony tax haven in Kent...Expiditions were sent to transport more of the stones to the circle....and the rest as they say is....pre-history.
