on the one hand, you have developers, who would like to use land regardless of any archeological value. then you have archeophiles, who would fight to preserve many things there simply isn’t money for. In the end, if corporations get to make the decisions, many fascinating things will vanish, and have.
Is this the only extant mini-maze of its type left, or the best preserved or sited? That would be a good argument for preserving it.
“Of its type” is the key to it. It is not the only one, but it is really old and has been continuously used. I know there is one in the foyer of the Methodist church down the street, but it isn’t old, it isn’t outdoors, and it certainly isn’t made from turf. There soon will be one at the Episcopal church we used to attend, but again, not outside, not grass turf and most definitely not old.
