The pigs have it

Very interesting article in the Independent online today - sorry can't do link - on research published in the American journal Science Advances of isotopicanalysis of pigs teeth from Avebury, Durrington Walls, Marden and Dorchester. All now ceremonial sites where tribes gathered from as far away as Scotland..this land was already significantly interconnected 4500 years ago. The animals were all young and couldn't have been brought to the sites by droving..evidence therefore of the extent of our maritime capability and by inference that there were maritime settlements that could be classified as ports and vessels of more substance than the Dover boat?
