Nice design -- pity about the content

 The online edition of Wiltshire magazine is now available, and so we can all read the article by Robert Harvey at our leisure.  It's called "New Light on Old Stones" but there is nothing new in it at all -- in fact, it isn't even up-to-date enough to report on the geology reports of the last 12 months or so.  The design is delightful, but one would have thought that the author could have found SOMETHING relatively new to place before his readers.  The Darvill - Wainwright nonsense about sacred stones and healing springs is repeated yet again -- although the author does have the good grace to report on Mike Pitts' scepticism.......

There will be two further articles on the same broad subject. Let's hope these may be slightly more up-
