The Bluestone Enigma



Following that glitsch in ordering and supply, I'm happy to report that a stock of "The Bluestone Enigma" (the book that tells the other story) is back in the EH warehouse, and should shortly be back on the shelves at the Stonehenge Visitor Centre.  So even though there is a powerful emphasis on the "historical orthodoxy" of the human transport story as related by EH, there is at least a willingness to accept that there are alternatives........

Strangely, there appears to be much less willingness on the part of other museums / information centres in Wiltshire to stock and sell the book, in spite of numerous approaches my myself and others.

Deviating a tad from this Post, fellow bloggers (many of whom I know will be non - subscribers to "orthodox" U.K. archaeology magazines) may be interested to discover that we do not have long to wait for the January/February 2016 issue of British Archaeology magazine. The editor is Mike Pitts, and he told me recently at a talk he gave that it will have a feature article on The Bluestones in it.

I have just received Current Archaeology for January 2016. British Archaeology usually arrives a few days later. I await with bated 9but not bad?) breath.

Having not looked at this Blogsite for several days, I was bemused to see elsewhere your mention of me (within the rather long titanic battle between beeman and sundry others), in the context of what you referred to as 'digs of an archaeological nature' or similar, as if I am unaware that digs are usually of an archaeological nature when mentioned by any of us on here.

At least I do subscribe to two orthodox U.K. archaeology magazines. Whilst I am not averse to using well directed satire here on occasion, I think the satire is usually fairly well - informed by current archaeological views and topics.

Well, famine and feast. It looks as if a veritable flood of articles will be appearing in the next fortnight or so. (Well, three at least........) We can take it for granted, I suppose, that the Antiquity paper by MPP and his colleagues will get the full works, with the University College of London press office working flat out to get saturation coverage across the media of the Rhosyfelin "Neolithic Quarry" and all its wonders.....

Tony,
as far as I recall the digging was the sixties argot kind, a period with which I believe you are familiar. Sorry if any offence was caused; it was completely unintentional.
