Plan showing where the six exploratory pits were dug at the end of the 2017 digging season.
Thanks to Chris for passing on the info from Prof MPP's recent lecture in Amsterdam. Chris says that the booket issued for the learned gathering contained these words from MPP: “(we) have located what appears to be the remains of a dismantled stone circle at Waun Maun. If it is indeed a full circle of emptied stone sockets, as it appears to be, then it would be Britain’s second largest stone circle after the outer ring at Avebury.”
The Coflein record goes along with the idea that there might have been a stone circle here:
The Coflein record says there are four stones here -- one standing and three prostrate. That matches with my observations -- and there may be other prostrate stones further down the slope. I agree that there is a chance that there was a large circular setting here which may or may not have been completed -- but the reference to a "dismantled stone circle"is really rather presumptuous, since it might just as well have been incomplete or simply allowed to become ruinous. Or it might have been destroyed by some irate tribe from next door....... The word "dismantled" implies a conscious decision by somebody or other to remove stones and take them away. But we are all used to MPPs assumptions and assertions by now.........
