The Template[edit]

I thought it was about time there was a template to link the various European Standing Stone arrangements as although there are many articles, of varying size and quality, nothing really brought them all together.

I am sure I've missed some out. I've chosen most of those I could find which have either articles of their own or significant sections in other articles. I've tried to arrange the countries alphabetically and toyed with the idea of separating the nations of the UK as most of the articles seem to be about the UK, but thought that that would end up in an edit war like many similar situations so opted to have a single group for the UK, but to split the UK nations into separate sub-gtoups (I'd be happy to be corrected on whether Jersey should be with the UK or separate).

Feel free to either add other standing stones / standing stone articles, or if you are not sure of the syntax of the template, leave a list of links to any Wikipedia page that should be added and it can be easily done.

To add the template to any page, use {{European Standing Stones}}. -MRM (talk) 18:05, 19 July 2008 (UTC)

Consider Adding[edit]

List any article that should be added below.

Picture[edit]

Not convinced that adding a picture does anything for an already busy template. If one is to be used, a portrait format of a single stone may be better than a landscape group. MRM (talk) 07:53, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

Remove items?[edit]

As this template is for European megaliths why do we have lists for Lebanon and Syria ?
