Aye, that’s it Mr S.

Just been talking with moss about the columns at Karnack – they're so close together because of the (span) restrictions of the lintels. Same thing at Abydos. I guess something similar was at play at Stonehenge as well – ie the spacing between the uprights was dictated by the limitations of the lintels.

Jeeze... Abydos... that place is still roofed. Remember a couple of hours drive to get there but it was worth it. Had the place all to myself (other than a shadowy attendant who flittered behind one column after another). He did show me where the Osireion was though. Bloody ‘ell, what were they up to! "OK fellas, we’ll haul another of those double-decker size rocks into place today – see if it fits properly and looks alright." ;-)
