Very topical - Druids and Stonehenge
#1
http://www.pasthorizons.tv/tv/view/132/e...tonehenge/

but on a more serious note... have people noted that the DCMS funding shortfall means... well slap me sideways! .... the Stonehenge visitors centre may be shelved...

If I was a visitor I would be furious.. I have already been standing waitning to get in for 20 years Wink all I wanted was to go to the toilet.

Oh yes... ten years ago or more Dave McOmish published in Antiquity about a particularly large midden on Salisbury Plain, and a lot of Mike Parker Pearson's work at Durrington is looking at all of this kind of thing. More to with animal bones than human waste, though...

So, are we thinking that the stones were placed to mark the toilets? Would make some sense if people were coming from a long way off and diidn't have the benefit of glasses....

Maybe they needed a really big marker to guide the way so they didn't get lost whilst staggering tired and emotional from that massive beano at Durrington Walls that Mike Parker-Pearson found a couple of years ago? :face-huh:

Nonsense.

The trilothons are quite clearly goals.

Rural Wiltshire? Croquet hoops, surely.

Big ones for use with those giant balls that keep following Indiana Jones around.
