Book Description

21 Sep 2012
The village of Stanton Drew in north Somerset is host to a remarkable group of ancient monuments which together comprise the third largest collection of standing stones in England. Its Great Circle, the largest of three stone circles, exceeds the dimensions of Stonehenge. Recent archaeology has revealed that a substantial woodhenge once occupied the site, underlining its importance as a major ritual centre of the Neolithic age. Gordon Strong, a regular lecturer on the subject, has spent many years exploring this fascinating site on multiple levels. In this well illustrated book he presents archaeological detail, local folklore and the views of various commentators from 18th century antiquarians to dowsers, discussing mythology, mediumship and earth energies. His insights are gleaned from his long love-affair with the site, and offer the visitor some clues for making their own inner connection to this unique monument which still retains its ancient magic.

5.0 out of 5 stars About Time 20 Oct 2012
When an author writes with a real passion for his subject it shines through every word. This is not the first book that Gordon Strong has published on the wonderful sacred landscape of Stanton Drew, but it is, I feel, the first time his intimate knowledge of the site has been allowed a true marriage with his love of place.
One has sensed in previous tomes a reining in of both aspects of this volume, due either to simple word count or the demographics of the audience for which the books have been written. Here, however, the unbridled passion for Stanton Drew is allowed to publicly blossom, unfolding petal by petal before the readers' mind.
I have met Gordon Strong. We spent a balmy summer afternoon, a window of perfect weather amid the showers, laid on the grass in the centre of the stones watching the clouds make dragons in the sky as he talked about the landscape. He showed me the traces within the land that charted the evolution of the site from its inception to its decline, and I can tell you that this is no mere jumping on the bandwagon of a subject. There is a deep and abiding love of the place, a knowledge fuelled by decades of exploration, gleaned and researched from many sources and an inspired and introspective understanding of the slow procession of time and Man across the pages of history and the living Earth.
Gordon's enthusiasm is infectious and genuine, seeping into the reader by a kind of osmosis of the soul. His undoubted knowledge covers all aspects of the circle from geology to archaeology and his speculations and interpretation of the site takes a journey from the stars, twining intimately around fact, fiction and legend.
