'...It is a fascinating theory and (if true) has the potential to rewrite the history books and change our long-held concepts of the origins of European civilisation.' --The Cauldron, November 2006 'It is obvious that Macaulay was a person of great personal charisma. As well as presenting Macaulay's work for posterity, the editors have added a number of biographical sketches and explanatory notes about her life and work, and have produced a fitting tribute to this independent thinker.' --Northern Earth, Sep. 2006 'Investigates the geometry and cultural significance of stone circle sites with many photographs and line drawings to guide the reader.' -- David Lorimer, Scientific and Medical Network Review, Summer 2006 'Illustrated thoughout with plans and photographs of stone circles, it is a tribute to all concerned.' -- The Salisbury Review, Spring 2007 'Anne's posthumous gift to all those who are fascinated by the works of megalithic cultures.' -- Marke Pawson, Caduceus & ICM Journal, Autumn 2006 'Macaulay's work is marvellously infused with geometrical and musical considerations ... One would like to see an annual Anne Macaulay lecture set up, in which speakers grapple with these intractable and yet deeply important issues; and maybe combat in some degree the tides of Rugglesian scepticism now washing over academe.' -- Nick Kollestrom, The Megalithic Portal
