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'm not taking sides here Paul but it's surprising how views differ and no matter how much one person believes they have the answer, the other person is not for turning because of their strong belief. There's nowt as queer as folk :-)

Yeah i know Roy, it's just a bit of fun, Ancient settlements and monuments do come together most of the time, and often when the settlements gone it's because they've been long ploughed out, this is true the all over the country and isn't me saying it, The remains are there for all to see up and down the country, it's not about books, or what someone else says, it's about your own eyes and your own mind, Geoffs right not to believe if he hasn't seen it with his own eyes, but my thing was if i could show you the link in the flesh it would be very hard to still see it in the way he thinks it is, i mean there must have some royalty down here at lands end with all these massive quoits, in reality they are all spaced out serving their own settlements and there's nowhere better to see that than the remains down here at lands end, on bodmin moor and Dartmoor because the remains of monument and settlement are so complete, only believing with your own eyes is a good thing, i know that : > }
