You could do one every few months of different places, a mag telling all we know of the place and a little build your own model of it as well, what with reading about it and actually building it, you'd teach people loads about the places, I'd love them all over my shelves.

Well Trethevy was suited to a model because it explained it all so much easier and coupled with the numbering on the stones you'll see it in a completely different light. I'm very pleased with it and hope it makes people think more and not just always take what our peers say as being gospel. It completely changes from an 'open' chamber to a 'sealed' unit and explains the fallen stone and the leaning one.
Then again, I'm not a renowned archaeo just someone who used observation instead of a trowel so won't be applauded for it even if found to be correct which one can never be 100%, but I've had a bloody good try which I'm proud of :-)
KAH next...now that IS a challenge!

But if you was applauded by them it would probably mean you was wrong anyway: > )

My missus has just said I should get out more....good, I only need telling once! :-)
