The truth? So there we are then....... all sorted.
As we all know, Waun Mawn is being revisited as we speak -- MPP and his depleted team of diggers are hard at work up there on the sunny moorland, working hard to enhance the highly entertaining "lost circle" fantasy which has come into being over the past three or four years. It's a delightful story, suitable for all ages.
Our hero plans to describe the latest discoveries at an evening at the Bluestone Brewery on 14th September, but here is a summary of what we know so far:
There have been TV programmes and assorted other articles about Waun Mawn in glossy popular magazines, but that's all froth, designed to promote the idea of the "lost circle" without having to present any serious evidence. The "Antiquity" article is all that matters -- it is supposed to be the definitive peer-reviewed research report, and it is truly appalling.
I have attempted to record the evidence from Waun Mawn in a rather more measured fashion in this article which has been very heavily consulted:
Interestingly enough, although I invite comments, nobody has pulled me up on any inaccuracies or misrepresentations. With over 3,300 reads so far, this article shows due respect to the scientific method, but it also plays an important role in flagging up the fact that over 3,300 people are aware that there is a rather vigorous dispute going on -- something which MPP and his learned colleagues appear to be blissfully ignorant about. Strange, that.
