Our favourite organ has published an article about Stonehenge and the findings of Professor Vince Gaffney and an Austrian research team regarding what lies underneath the complex.
It comes with a helpful moving picture of modern hunter gatherers at the site performing their traditional jumping up and down dance, with drums.http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/ ... round.html
They seem to have found another fifteen structures underground. A fuller article is to be found at the Smithsonian site where three pages with photos are devoted to the topic. The good prof waxes lyrical about 'the Jerusalem Effect' which must be exciting for the archaeologists. Perhaps it means they bang their heads against the stones while muttering incantations to the ancient gods.
He still doesn't seem to know what it was all for but he is very enthusiastic. And uses big words like 'cathedralesque' and the like. http://www.smithsonianmag.com/history/w ... he=&page=1
I thought I would add this as an example of straightness to balance the previous weirdness.
Although sometimes straightness seems to be weirder than weirdness. The idea of men actually carrying the bluestones from 'North Wales' (sic) seems weird and Pythonesque if not Cathedralesque.
