Stonehenge Parchmarks Return in 2017

You may remember that I was a co-author of a paper on Parchmarks at Stonehenge

Banton, S., Bowden, M., Daw, T., Grady, D., & Soutar, S. (2014). Parchmarks at Stonehenge, July 2013. Antiquity, 88(341), 733-739. doi:10.1017/S0003598X00050651

Which discussed how pale patches where missing stones "should" have been suggested strongly that the holes at least had been dug for them, if not that the stones were erected there.

There was also a suggestion of another ring of holes equidistant between the Z and Y holes. I noticed that the marks have reappeared again this year, which is important as it adds to the years they have been documented in and shows they were not some aberration of the year of discovery.
