I wish archeologists would stick to the facts and not attribute everything to
religious ceremonies. The evidence for human sacrifice was flimsy. You could
just as well say that Richard III was killed in a human sacrifice.
The claims that only children could have done the decoration of a dagger handle,
turned out to be the opinion of a nano artist, who said that it had to be made
by people who were under 21, not just children. Not sure where he got 21 from my
eyesight changed to the point where I needed reading glasses, when I was in my
early forties. The long palisade was interesting. How could they know that some
of the posts were seven metres high. The explanation of what it was for was
laughable

The palisade was simple, it was the stone age equivalent of the Berlin
or Israeli walls to keep the tribe next door out :-)

The difference is that the palisade had ends. There's nothing to stop somebody
entering Stonehenge by avoiding the palisade. It is similar to Maginot line.
Lines don't stop people.

There's an old joke amongst museum curatorial staff in the UK.

"When an archeologist finds something and doesn't know what it is then
it's invariably described as either 'Horse furniture' or 'a ritual
object'..."
