I have reverted the moving of Cossington and Great Tottington as they are settlements if not villages and appending megalith to the names is inaccurate (there are several stones) and not a common name. adamsan 14:42, 30 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Can "The tombs are all located between Maidstone and Rochester" be justified? Coldrum stones / Longbarrow is some distance to the west. Perhaps a minor rewording should be considered. LiamE

Other sarsen megaliths[edit]

They are the only group of megaliths in eastern England and the only significant megalithic use of sarsen stone outside Wiltshire.

I'm not 100% on this but I think there are some in Dorset. I'll have a look into it. --LiamE 15:16, 24 September 2005 (UTC)

I didn't have to look far! The sarsen article cites use in Dorset and Hampshire. Needs a little revision. --LiamE 15:32, 24 September 2005 (UTC)
Sure there's natural sarsen elsewhere but I think the source's point was that it isn't used in a megalithic group there. adamsan 16:21, 24 September 2005 (UTC)
Okay I misread that! Anyway it would have been odd that an area with as much neolithic activity and available sarsen as Dorset wouldn't have seen significant use. This, this and flagstones are examples. --LiamE 17:02, 24 September 2005 (UTC)
Nice finds, perhaps a change to "signficant structural use of sarsen"? adamsan 17:41, 24 September 2005 (UTC)
You're on the edit list for flagstones - you found it before me! Anyway "significant structural use of sarsen" would work. Either that or open up Wiltshire to "Wiltshire and the surrounding/nearby downland" perhaps. Or "outside of the group of neolithic structures centred on Wiltshire" In fact that last one gets my vote. I'll leave the final coice to you. --LiamE 19:00, 24 September 2005


Sure. Also, if you find any more info for Flagstones then do please add it. It seems to be an interesting site, built after the causewayed enclosures but before the henges. adamsan 19:13, 3 October 2005 (UTC)
