Well written and easy to understand. The focus of this book is very much about the overall development of this area, rather than concentrating on the monument. As such, it gives valuable insights into what else exists and, in some cases, describes things which are not noted elsewhere (some Stonehenge books contain very similar content, but this is not one of them)

5.0 out of 5 stars A great resource 2 July 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I keep coming back to this book time and time again, so I invested in a copy.
Excellent 'in-depth' information for not only Stonehenge as a monument but also puts it in context within the landscape.
A great resource for anyone studying archaeology.
