Just once I'd like to see these guys try to move a big stone overland and cross a ridge or a stream along the way with nothing but ropes and muscle power.

For that matter, I'd like to see the Egyptology Club do the same thing.
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

I am indeed Shark, but I feel I must correct a common error made yourself.
The original suggestion that the stones might be glacial erratics dates back, I believe, to the 1920s, and no serious investigater has suggested that the stones were dumped on SP.
If you read my earlier posts on the subject you will see that a possible source for such erratics is both north and south of the Bristol Channel.

some guy figured out how to move large stones fairly easy.
www.theforgottentechnology.com
I have tried it, it works really well.

are there 2 wear points on the stones slightly off center of gravity ?
if so, then they likely moved them in this method.
if not, then did they clean up the stones on location after they were moved ?

Another method I saw demonstrated some time ago required no rollers, which wouldn't work anyway, no sled, the stones were 'rowed.

A much more suitable transport method than the other two over uneven ground.

spacecase0:

This is a you tube video I posted a while back on your guy "moving heavy objects for fun"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lRRDzFROMx0

It does make you think.
If one old guy can do this by himself. what could 10 or 20 guys do?
