Western Mail feature on Bluestones

There was a full-page feature in the Western Mail today, purporting to be in my words, but actually written by one of the paper's journalists following a long chat on the phone. Not surprisingly, I am made to say all sorts of things I didn't say -- and there are lots of half-truths and misunderstandings as well. There you go -- that is the nature of journalism, I suppose......

The website title ("Stonehenge was not made from Preseli bluestones") was singularly unfortunate, since nobody has ever made that claim -- so there was nothing to disprove. In the printed paper, the headline was "Time to let the sun set on Preseli bluestone myth" -- which is much more like it!

Anyway, the publicity will be good for the "Do" Lectures -- which is great.
