{A robed priest seated on a rock leans over a bound sacrificial victim on a low altar stone, his hand raised holding a stone knife.}
caption: Most stone-age priests worked in a seated position with a horizontal altar stone.

{A tattooed priest stands excitedly in front of a bloodstained standing stone.}
caption: But in the late Neolithic, for ergonomic reasons, standing stones became popular.

The author writes:
