Unsettling The Science On The Stonehenge Sarsens
Living between Avebury and Stonehenge I have always been interested in how the massive Sarsen stones, weighing up to 45 Tons, were moved from near the former to the latter.
There is a consensus answer which has been told to millions of people over the last fifty years. It involves a large detour to the west and then across the Pewsey Vale near Etchilhampton.
But that means the sarsens were dragged across fields where I have stood knee deep in the slime waiting for snipe to fly. I could barely drag my cartridge bag so forget dragging massive blocks of stone.
The science was obviously wrong, so I'm glad to see a new route proposed which seems to make more sense. See what you think.
