Sir: If subsequent excavations bear out John Aubrey's assertion ("Found: the lost avenue of Avebury stones", 1 September) that Avebury, with its surrounding archaeological gems, is a "cathedral" compared with the "parish church" of Stonehenge, I fear it is likely that the poor old taxpayer will have to dig even deeper to pay for an Avebury underpass. This would rival the costs of the other one envisaged by the Department of Transport to the other side of Amesbury. See you in the souvenir shop.
