THIS is awesome. The most maddening part about this book is you have more questions than before you picked it up, but don't think for a second it's short on information.
A wonderful read covering
hundreds of megalithic sites in Britain and beyond. A great coffee table book, or worth lugging with you if you're touring the UK.

This book changed my life, 15 years ago I bought this book and have since been to over two thousand ancient sites over 6 countries.
It is a brilliant book
