stonehenge hospital

Interesting article by Simon Jenkins from The Guardian of Friday 1 December: 'Not a fortress, or a temple, or a calendar. Stonehenge was a hospital: The new archaeological theory as to why huge monoliths were dragged from Wales to Salisbury Plain is utterly convincing'.

We've been on the Preseli hills where the bluestones came from; an interesting place; the way the rocks split make them eminently usable, and if I remember rightly folk reckon that there are ones there which have been prepared for use but not taken anywhere. Some pics among these.
