Surely you’re not suggesting the (original) builders would choose a less stable construction over a more stable one? We’re talking about a people who knew their materials and understood the properties and limitations of those materials inside out. The fact that the structures have survived so long is proof positive of that.

If anyone doubts Sanctuary's findings at Trethevy they should watch his latest DVD.

Thank you kindly LS.
I should perhaps point out that the DVD is purely an amateur one and the latest of many previous ones and not on sale. Trethevy is one of those places that you can go to on a perfectly calm day yet still get windrush spoiling parts of what you have recorded if you don't have an external muffled mic.
I am trying to rectify that situation however by getting a pal who is a professional photographer to shoot one for me although he keeps telling me to learn to put a voice track to the one I already have. Gulp!
