Britain is a land full of fascinating historical sites and remarkable physical features. The landscape itself, with its many idiosyncrasies and strange traits, serves as a key to the past - the stone circles, prehistoric domestic dwellings, tombs and temples, rock carvings, earthworks, holy wells and Roman remains, all contain clues of civilisations long past and hint at how our ancestors used to live.In this lavishly-illustrated and very readable guide, authors Janet and Colin Bord explore the origins of such features and investigate the ancient sites associated with folklore and legend. With recommendations of places to visit and Ordnance Survey map references in each chapter, this is the perfect companion for anyone seeking to explore the richness of Britain's ancient mysteries. "REVIEW: 'A fascinating illustrated guide' (Sunday Express) AUTHBIO: Janet and Colin Bord wrote their first book, 'Mysterious Britain', in 1972. Since then they have written a further eighteen books together, and have travelled widely throughout Britain taking photographs of prehistoric sites, antiquities and places of folklore interest. Many of these are held in their own photographic archive, The Fortean Picture Library.
