Book Description

1 Jun 2010
The extraordinary wealth of ancient and historical sites on the Welsh island of Anglesey represents a microcosm of British history, from the deep Neolithic past to the Roman occupation, through the rise of the Welsh princes to the heyday of the Victorian resort of Beaumaris. It was on Anglesey that the ancient Druids took their last stand against the Roman invaders. Neil McDonald is an expert on the mythic and historical geography of Anglesey. In this fascinating book, he explores the island's heritage and countryside, providing vivid descriptions and rich historical backgrounds for its landmarks and culture. Anglesey, A Megalithic Journey combines clear writing with excellent historical understanding, the perfect guide to your own tour of the island.

3.0 out of 5 stars Anglesey archaeology guide 29 April 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
An interesting little book spoilt by some basic errors that should not have got past a good editor. For example, on p. 8 it is stated that Boudicca sacked Winchester, on p. 43 the author speculates that the inhabitants of Din Lligwy might have watched the sunset over an east-facing bay and on p. 80 it is suggested that the rock carvings in Barclodiad Y Gawres burial chamber comprise the finest collection of rock art in Britain. The map of the sites covered is very poorly reproduced.
The CADW guide (ISBN 1-85760-142-4), although older, is cheaper and has better illustrations.

2.0 out of 5 stars Below Average 30 Jun 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book is poor quality, the illustrations are difficult to read, the text tends to wander off into irrelevant and made up information.

The CADW guide (ISBN 1-85760-142-4), although older is much more useful, is much cheaper and has much better illustrations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Anglesey: A Megalithic Journey 9 July 2012
By JBK
Format:Paperback
I had been to Anglesey before but hadn't seen any of the sites shown in the book. A very enjoyable read - makes you want to go out and explore. A good book to read before you go, but remember to take it with you to follow the location details for great day out.

5.0 out of 5 stars travel-companion volume 8 Mar 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is definitely a book to take with you on the trip: slender, organized by areas, the xlnt foldout map includes roadways as well as sites and their location details including off-road directions to sites.
