There are about 1,000 stone circles in the British Isles. If you include other megalithic monuments such as stone rows, long barrows, cairns, cists, standing stones and others, the number runs to tens of thousands. Yet most people can only name one: Stonehenge.
This film is a unique travelogue in which presenter Rupert Soskin and director Michael Bott discover the wealth that is Megalithic Britain. They visit over 100 of the magnificent Neolithic and Bronze Age monuments scattered throughout these islands.
More than two years in the making, this broadcast-standard documentary, written and presented by explorer and naturalist Soskin, takes you from the tip of Cornwall to the Scottish Isles on an unforgettable journey through the landscape of our ancient past.
On a scale never attempted before, two and a quarter hours of stunning photography reveals a landscape filled with enigma, mystery and more than a few surprises.
Altogether a beautiful and professional piece of work, and extraordinary value for money. --Fortean TimesSee all Editorial Reviews

Love the book and love the DVD even more - just wish it was longer and included Stonehenge & Avebury - which they left out because they thought everyone was familiar with them. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Vone
