Last night it occurred to me that it would help just to have some life-size figures standing nearby to give some idea of the scale of the place when I had a brilliant idea. Can you imagine, a display of the iron men, by Antony Gormley in and around Stonehenge? The thing is the figures are life-size and just eerie enough to pull it off and could work really well to give an idea of the scale and mystery of the whole area.

I expect it's blasphemous to even think of desecrating the site in such a way -- the pre-historic Mecca of the British tourism. Nevertheless, the idea appeals... I am not thinking such a thing would even be possible -- but imagination can go where it likes!
Here is the thing about Stonehenge: I can see more of its mystique in photographs and television documentaries -- on film -- that I did in person. I had already bought a small tourist guide at Salisbury Cathedral and looking at it a few days later I was more entranced than I was while standing before it!
