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.

Youtube link ?

Frayed knot Geoff. Nobody would need to buy the book if I did that. I said earlier it wasn't for sale. Still good though :-)

Not quoit then?

Whenever i'm at Trethevy i'm always disappointed with the backstone laid in the chamber, it would be great if they just lifted that one back up so you could at least sit in the chamber [if you can get in it's original little entrance, like you do at zennor and Chun] and not be on top of the fallen stone that covers most of the floor inside.
