Now John, I thought we had established - a decade ago on Britarch - that Francis Pryor is, in fact, Mike Parker Pearson...
That was surely evident from their 'dual' appearance on a documentary discussing Stonehenge, hosted by John Suchet.
Not only were we treated to the spectacle of the two sitting either side of the interviewer, looking for all the world as if they were mirror images of each other, but at one point, Suchet actually addressed 'Francis Pryor' as : "Mike". And it was only after the commercial break - during which the director had clearly informed Suchet that he had 'give the game away' - that he attempted to correct himself. As for their dual appearance in the same camera shot, that is easily explainable by the televisual device of 'split-screen' :-)
