Editorial Reviews

Review

“Wonderful photographs… A magnificent feast for anyone with the slightest interest in prehistoric monuments…” (Journal of Scientific Exploration)

“Reading the accompanying text for each site is like being led by a trustworthy tour guide, which the author has indeed often been. He does not try to drown you in facts but tells you how to get to each site, what to look for while there, and what to keep in mind about it.” (New Age Retailer)

About the Author

A much-published nature and travel photographer, Rupert Soskin lectures and has led groups to visit ancient sites and natural wonders in Britain and abroad. He currently lives in France.

Format: Hardcover
This photo-book is breath-taking.Good stories supporting the pictures.More than a coffee-table piece of eye-candy.This book will become a corner-stone reference on the topic of sacred mega-stones.Stonehenge is thee most historically important structure on Earth,not just the British Isles.It's older than the Great Wall of China and even older than the astronomically aligned great pyramids of Egypt.The lesser stone circles of Britain and Ireland are a lasting testament to the Earth-based religions of yester-year too.Stonehenge is still a mecca for all neo-pagans and a new visitor's center is being constructed nearby.This book is your picture guide to the most amazing lithic circles made by prehistoric peoples,for agricultural rituals and celestral worship,anywhere on Earth.

I read the book from cover to cover the day it arrived, and was astonished by the pictures of so many sites. Everybody knows about Stonehenge, but there are far more of these sites than I ever knew about. The book is hugely entertaining, and although the text accompanying the photos of the sites is very brief, it's enough. If you want to get into the subject more deeply, there are other books that are not primarily photo books. I liked this book so well, it makes me want to do a tour in Great Britain to see more of the sites. I've been to Stonehenge and Avebury, and now that I've seen some of the others, I know it would be a great trip. The book has pretty high production values, too, even a ribbon to mark your place. Some of the small photos have a fuzzed edge, which is kind of corny, but the large photos are good, and really let you see the scale of these places. After looking at half of the book, all you can think is "how did they do it?" This would be a great book for a young person, too --
