Concentrating on the eighty most important sites in Britain and Ireland, this illustrated guide to stone circles and landscape temples is the first work on the subject to combine stunning photography with scientific survey. Stone circles are one of the enticements and fascinations of prehistory. The emptiness and mystery of these sites and their weathered stones have captivated, perplexed, and attracted visitors from all over the world.
Max Milligan's images convey the serene beauty and unique aura of these sites, and range from descriptive and informative views to strikingly abstract and inspiring compositions. The text by Aubrey Burl, the acknowledged authority on the subject, offers detailed historical accounts and descriptions of the sites, and recounts the powerful myths and legends that have surrounded them and persist to this day.
