‘Weird, wonderful’: rare dig at Arthur’s Stone writes new story of neolithic site

High above one of western Britain’s loveliest valleys, the silence is broken by the sound of gentle digging, scraping and brushing, along with bursts of excited chatter as another ancient feature is revealed or a curious visitor stops by to find out what is going on.
