When English Heritage was drawing up plans for its new Stonehenge visitor centre, authenticity was a key value. It was fortunate, then, that an exhaustive search of the archives from its digs at Durrington Walls revealed Neolithic stone carvings which showed the key role that scaffolding towers played when willow dwellings were first constructed. This enabled exact replicas to be used as the houses are being reconstructed at the side of the new visitor centre, thus ensuring that strict Neolithic, as well as 21st century, health 'n' safety protocols are adhered to. Phew!
