I have a nice light and fluffy question. In Durham we are currently re-organising our further information files. We have significant amounts of information about some interesting theories about some of the features in County Durham, such as pyramids in County Durham and Rock Art coming from lost Roman forts. Obviously, everyone else has similar problems, but how have you dealt with the information and the HER.

Basically we are torn whether to put in the information in the Further Information files which may lead to misinterpretation of sites when combined with other information or we keep it separate which may endorse some of the theories, or put suggest that they are completely incorrect (when there is no way we can ever prove the theories one way another).
