Bluestones summer lecture

My summer lecture last night went off very smoothly, with a good audience of around 60 people from far and wide.  I tried to summarise the recent published research in the fields of glaciology and geology and -- inevitably -- had a go at some of the archaeological fantasies which are currently in fashion.  I expected some growling and snarling from the archaeologists and "ancient wisdom" people who were in the audience, but in the event it was all very civilised, and nobody came up with anything remotely difficult to cope with.    Had a really good chat with many members of the audience afterwards, over a cup of coffee and a slice of cake.  Maybe the times -- and the Stonehenge story -- really are a'changin' .........
