I had to read this twice, as I couldn't quite believe it first time round :
"It is very exciting to find a piece of physical evidence that officially makes the connection which we were hoping for."
National Trust archaeologist Dr Nick Snashall said it confirms "with total certainty" that Stonehenge and its Avenue were linked.
Are they actually trying to suggest there was some doubt over whether the avenue and Stonehenge were connected?! Whaat? Bizarre.
