EDG ,had made a good point , which I mentioned in a reply to Moss .

“Others only think differently George because they have not researched the quoit correctly. “
Although this was never answered directly an indirect explanation from Roy today was “You do it by firstly not believing what you are always told by your peers if something doesn't appear to be right. One 'expert' after another copies each others work because they are lazy and don't even attempt to see it differently yet become icons in the archaeological world and much respected. Open your eyes, look for alternatives and don't be afraid to break the mould. We amateurs only have our eyes, brains and downright common sense compared to what the professional has at their disposal. “ This suggests that anyone who has a different view from Roy's or an “expert “ (always used pejoratively and in quotes ) have not used their eyes ,brains ,common sense ,are lazy etc . That attitude is what annoyed EDG .
