Ahhh ok now I don't understand what they would have leaned against . .

The capstone George. Imagine a tripod dolmen, then close the sides by leaning stones against it.

Unless I have misunderstood I can't think of any that do that . They are all underneath and covered by the capstone although they may have followed the erection of the capstone .When they excavated Tirnony a few years ago the thought was that the side stones were in place when the capstone was erected .
