How much do we know about Stonehenge? Less than we think. And what has Stonehenge got to do with the Ice Age? More than we might think. This blog is mostly devoted to the problems of where the Stonehenge bluestones came from, and how they got from their source areas to the monument. Now and then I will muse on related Stonehenge topics which have an Ice Age dimension...
THE BOOK Some of the ideas discussed in this blog are published in my new book called "The Stonehenge Bluestones" -- available by post and through good bookshops everywhere. Bad bookshops might not have it.... To order, click HERE

Submerged forest - Swansea Bay and Gower
Swansea Bay -- foreshore in front of Singleton Park (3 photos)
I found some nice pics of the submerged forest around Gower and in Swansea Bay -- on Adam Tilt's blog:
These next 3 photos are from Broughton Bay:
Adam says that there are similar exposures in Port Eynon, Whiteford and elsewhere...... Not much peat, by the look of it, but a lot of estuarine mud......
But this is a curious feature on Whiteford Sands. Looks like a bomb crater (it's 8 ft in diameter) with a thinnish layer of peat or peaty silt thrown up around the circumference..... What is it? Answers on a postcard please........
