I can only disagree if i know how you thought it was like back then, is it right that you think that quoits like this were for one person or geneline and not used by the community, if it's yes we will agree to disagree, if you ever get down here i'll show you how the quoits are linked to their respective settlements therefore showing how they served those people [normal people], it's easy to show and to see and i bet i'd change your mind in one afternoon.

I fully believe the larger structures were funded by the royalty of the time, and only the "great" be interred in them, funerary structures included. I guess some stone circles may have been different, small "local" ones such as Dol Tor and the Nine Ladies let's say, but Stonehenge wasn't for your everyday folk in my opinion.
