Couple of nice sites, one from a very long running earth mysteries zine that is not "wacko". http://www.northernearth.co.uk , http://www.stonepages.com and paul devereuxs site which has some good links on it to megalithic sites-former editor of the ley hunter. http://www.pauldevereux.co.uk For the more academic http://www.prehistoricsociety.org/ still has some interesting stuff by the likes of miranda green and geoffrey wainwright.

Heres another nice one http://www.sacredsites.org.uk by jenny blain and robert wallis archaeologists and anthropologists. Jenny a practising Heathen and Robert a neo shaman. Academia mixed with heart!! Their book, Sacred Sites:contested rights/rites is a fine read dealing with access to sites.

Heres a really nice site dealing with the Avebury complex; not just the henge but all the lesser known ones as well such as Faulkners circle, East Kennet, Windmill Hill etc. http://www.avebury-web.co.uk/avebury_now.html

Armadale: "One of the most significant archaeological finds the Highlands."

Very complete Neolithic burial site found under a raised shingle beach near Armadale pier: http://bit.ly/38CzP. (I wish I'd known about it when visiting in September).

It's interesting to think about how much the geomorphology of the beach area of this burial site has or has not changed over the years since the Bronze age. The article suggests very little, the incumbents being buried in full sight of those travelling the coast in this area.

Same thing occurred to me - the pebbles must simply, perhaps suddenly in a storm, have been washed over the almost complete remains. One wonders whether certain societal change(s) might have simultaneously occurred to cause the site to be forgotten.

Let's say there was a violent storm a few days after the burial, that covered over the site, I wonder what the people would have done about that, if anything?
Equally, as you suggest, a societal change could have happened really quickly to leave the place deserted or abandoned.
