Oh dear -- I have just got my long-awaited copy of MPP's latest tome. On looking at the pictures first, as one does, I immediately came across the photo opposite to the base of page 199. There the caption is a classic piece of MPP speak -- "clear evidence of bluestone quarrying" -- "they then moved the monolith...." and so forth. Everything stated as fact, and even a reference to these wonderful stone "rails." Quote: ".... they then moved the monolith from the rock face along stone "rails" on which it still rests."
How do people like him get away with this sort of stuff? Don't publishers have editors these days? Here we go again. Hubris over scholarship, and pseudo-science even before I have read a word of the text. I'm not sure that I'm looking forward to reading the book..... but maybe somebody has to do it.
