The book was originally published in 1983, and still contains some of the historical viewpoints of Britain in that era, but on the whole is fair and well done. There is some removal of the Astronomical material from first edition, and it instead points toward other sources more involved with that one aspect. Likewise, the archeological data is only what is appropriate for this view of Stonehenge and its surrounding monuments.
If you only have one book on Stonehenge, this should be it, and if you plan on visiting the monument, pick it up first and at least browse through. You will understand the monument so much better, and really appreciate it.
Chippendale kindly leaves out most of the accumulated hype and hyperbole about the monument and lets the
thing speak for itself. Beautifully illustrated. Mercifully free of scientific jargon.
