    There was a sign on it this morning, reading:

    “Luashenge: Marvel at this wonderful collection of wiring cabinets. According to legend, they were dragged into place without any planning or forethought”.

    (or something similar)

    Just going to be picky, but a henge is circular, these are an alignment. So, Luasalignment.
    I’m an archaeologist. Sue me.

      Hey archaeologist! Is it true that a henge is a neolithic earthwork comprised of a ring bank and ditch, where the ditch is internal to the bank? And is it true that standing stones are not characteristic of henges at all (the Stonehenge site in England being unusual in this respect)?

      Ring bank and inner ditch, people. INNER ditch.

            Well, for a start, archaeology is pretty dangerous.

            My brother-in-law was working on a dig. One morning, cycling too the dig, he got hit by a bus.

        Ahem. A henge can be several things, usually Neolithic but always circular. The uprights would generally have ben wooden, but Stonehenge is unusual really only cos its stone, and very large. I love a good inner ditch.

          Thank you. We are all wiser now. As the old saying goes, “those who do not learn the lessons of archaeology are doomed to repeat them”.

            That would just be weird. Why would we make stuff out of bronze and flint and make houses with loads of breezes in them? We have double glazing!! Double!!
