Magic Stones documents, in photographs by Czech photographer Jan Pohribny, humanity's obsession with stone. Pohribny's journey - a pilgrimage lasting more than seventeen years - took him from the far north of Scandinavia, through the British Isles and across much of mainland Europe to the islands of the Mediterranean. From the temples of Malta and the great tombs and alignments of Brittany and Britain to the labyrinths of Finland, this book explores these enigmatic stones in their landscape, as part of nature and as a reminder that, thousands of years on, they still hold a certain magic.
With over 250 full-colour photographs of megalithic sites throughout Europe and an introduction by a maker and presenter of history shows, Julian Richards, Magic Stones will appeal to anyone interested in archaeology or in the more mythical aspects of these haunting reminders of our ancient past.
