It is a great find - with a capital GREAT. Will they re-erect it? Probably ... and the charge you to see it ? ... hopefully not.

"The circles may have taken centuries to go up, one by one. People have tended to see these things as temples. But I think the significance of the process was the dragging of the stones and their size and quality."

I'm not sure I agree with this quote though. If this is the case then some circles are really, really bad, because the quality and size of the stones is poor. Take the Cork/Kerry five-stoners - tiny but very importantly located. What he says might apply for the some areas, but it can't be applied everywhere.
