How have the noble Druids come to be found worshipping among the grand stones of a strange monument of unknown origins in the midst of a rotting necropolis?

Would that be a fair assessment?

I'm not certain I understand what you're getting at with that, Red Raven, but if you mean to suggest that because the ancient Druids used both stone and wood for utilitarian purposes that somehow explains why they should wish to worship among a bunch of corpses in the middle of a big circle of stones, it didn't work (open to correction).
