Arthur’s Stone

16 July 2022

At https://phys.org/news/2022-07-arthur-stone-year-old-monument-king.html … Arthur’s Stone is a 5000 + years old Neolithic chambered tomb in Herefordshire. It is little more than a few stones sticking out of the ground and is not very impressive to the casual visitor. However, that is the fault of 5000 years of British weather, as the tomb itself is mostly buried in soil and sediment. Once, there must have been a massive mound of earth covering it, according to archaeologists. On the other hand, the tomb may never have been finished. Only excavations will tell. That is the point of this link, excavations have now started and they are looking forwards to some significant discoveries. However, that is going to take some time.
