Following on from sam's <b>Latest News</b> item yesterday about the glacier theory for the bluestones at Stonehenge (please see sam's link at ) geologists from the Open University are claiming that the bluestones were not transported from the Preseli Hills but were glacial erratics found within the Stonehenge area.

I know the argument against human transport has been made before but I seem to remember a <i>worked</i> bluestone being found a few years ago on the seabed off the Welsh coast (might still have the news cutting somewhere) - that being so doesn't it suggest that the bluestones <i>were</i> transported from Wales?

There's a related article to the above at
