Hiya James, i did an image search on marble quarries a few days back, and in many pages of results all of the images were similar, except for the fact
that cuts were far neater. Understandably they were in a grid pattern for the purposes of efficiency.
All of the classical quarry pictures that i found looked a lot older than this and were far more eroded.
Like others i could find no English language papers or info on this particular site, but from what i ran through google translate (and iirc) it's part
of or at least very near to a classical necropolis and not a megalithic/stone age site.
Looking at the pics, using the nearby grasses for scale, these blocks are only a few inches square. They definitely look amateur cut and like an
earlier poster i wouldn't be surprised if someone in the modern era used power tools to quickly scavenge (steal?) stone from there for their own
Oh, and am i a guardian or a member of the gang of four? i used to be a very ordinary poster here so a promotion is exciting news
