    Just came across this. As one of the authors, can I make clear that we are referring just to the smaller bluestones at Stonehenge, and not the larger sarsen stones? The bluestones have come from many different sources — and the archaeologists claim that they have found the quarry where monoliths of just one rock type (foliated rhyolite) came from. There are no monoliths of this rick type at Stonehenge — just rock fragments in the soil. We have looked at the proposed “quarry” and think that all of the features are entirely natural.

    I’m not convinced they have found evidence of a quarry, ancient human activity seems very slight at Craig Rhos-y-felin. However, you must equally concede that there is no evidence of glaciation on Salisbury Plain.
