It doesn't look right because the back end of the capstone has pushed the backstone into the chamber and was then lucky [or forward thinking builders] to then rest on the side slabs, making that crazy sloping angle, it would have had a slope but not that much, Why didn't you talk to us all while writing your book?

I must say though in Stonefrees photo [row 6, 2nd from the left] it certainly looks like the 2 sidestones are the wrong way round, if they were the other way around they'd make a perfect slope, but that means the whole things been down at some point, but it hasn't, Has it?
