Personally I would have preferred to not know the henge was there, would have been happy to let the ancient man, who apparently died a violent death, rest in peace


In some places you get your wish June. I remember a road engineer saying to me how they'd hurriedly covered up a burial in the path of the M54 before it caused a "delay". And these days Highways England blatantly say they will only sieve a small percentage of the soil at Stonehenge as to do it all would be "too expensive".

On balance though I'd rather know what had been destroyed. Actually, nearly everything IS, roads don't bend, and they hide behind the "preserved by record" falsehood. But if I didn't know about the destruction what would I have to rant about?!?
