That all seems exciting. Are there plans to raise the re-exposed stone mentioned the below passage from your article?

"There is something very special about re-exposing a buried stone that you know was once part of what we possibly perceive as being a ‘ritualistic or ceremonial’ monument and once likely to have been last handled by our great ancestors some 4,500-5,000 years ago! We often refer to these stones as being ‘sacred’ and I have to admit to feeling a tingle when they first see the light of day again and always hope that they are not too deep to leave exposed once recorded. They were meant to be seen and although no longer all standing are nevertheless there for our wonderment and why we as a group find great pleasure and privilege in re-exposing them at any given opportunity."

At the moment, no June. When an application is submitted you have to detail all you are proposing to do and that's all you do unless it's something thought in keeping so can make small additions. Three 'known' and observed recumbent stones were selected for re-erection and only they were lifted. The stone we re-exposed was probably only recorded as 'likely to be there' so not included. The two others we detected were also left alone and not even exposed. There is so much to do elsewhere and time is tight.
