The Awkward Heelstone
David Field and Trevor Pearson say: "It was a good point made by Johnson (2008, 121) that the Heel Stone is too awkward and bulky a shape to move on rollers and it, at least, is unlikely to have travelled far."
It may be a bit rounder but is no bulkier or more awkward than the other stones - and it has a nice flat side to lay on a cradle. Their support for Johnson's inexplicable comment is surprising.
