What he is saying though , is that they did quarry for the Zennor stones , rather than use the rounded tor stones .

Does he offer any evidence for it other than they weren't rounded George?

The comment was in a pers. comm. to Tatjana Kytmannow and he didn't go into the detail .The "rounded" may have purely descriptive or part of the the interpretation , the convexity is related to the upper surface rather than the edges which appears the most superficially rounded spect ot the Tor stones presumably he would also have considered the micromodeles too .
