Discovering Hill Figures
'There are more than thirty major figures cut out of the grass on Britain's hillsides; cut as religious symbols, way markers, or as decoration to the landscape. Often, although prominently placed, the figures are overlooked, and in this book the author describes their exact location, the best point to view them and their history and legends.' The London Times.
