Would you say that an example of that would be the Aubrey Holes?
In 1956 they were suggested by R.J.C. Atkinson to be 'ritual pits'.
In 1995 they were recognised by English Heritage to be 'post holes'.
At present they are declared by none other than Mike Parker-Pearson to
have been 'Bluestone holes' which dates the arrival of those stones 500
years earlier than previously suspected.
It's always good to hear from you Lyle,
