Did I tell you about my lifetime ban from Canterbury Cathedral from when I was caught scratching a pentagon on one of the columns?* And what's worse they now have my photo up behind the turnstiles at every other abbey and cathedral, it's like the blanket ban people get from pubs.
*Actually a lie. Whereas the moron who thought Maen Penddu needed a cross will be able to do it again wherever they go. I wonder if it's basic ignorance that the stones are way older than christianity, and are actually protected by law. Or whether it's some mad evangelist genuinely trying to convert a lump of rock. Very very strange attitude. They should have to lick it off, the gits.
Obviously I am just highlighting the article as it was published. However, it does state that it was initially discovered in 2007 and that the stones were thought to have originally been up right because of the packing stones around their bases. That seem plausible IMHO but I am no archaeologist. The fact that it is now being investigated is good news.
Maybe I will get around to visiting the moor again this year and look out for this one :)
Very interesting stuff. It does beggar belief how this hasn't been 'discovered' before. If the photo is anything to go by it's hard to understand how no-one came across it in peoples' general wanderings. How do they know it would've been seen for miles around in the years of its use? It could be a recumbent stone circle, as that is what its first appears.
