5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on 7 Nov. 1998
Format: Paperback
Readable and detailed treatise on the subject of stone circles, and a standard work. It isn't designed as a gazeteer - the way he hops around the British Isles can be distracting in the field (Burl's A Guide to the Stone Circles of Britain, Ireland and Brittany is an excellent gazeteer). If it is understanding and comparison of the different constructional styles you can't beat this one for the depth of his analysis while staying sensitive to the subject.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book was advertised was as 'very good'. A previous book had not been as advertised, but in this case I was delighted with the book, its condition and the prompt delivery.

Comprehensive guide and no nonsense approach to circles 17 July 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In this book, Aubrey Burl gives the reader a general overview of megalithic stone monuments in the British Isles without all the supernatural or alien theories. His theories are firmly rooted in the earth, just like the stones.
The book includes a discussion of size, number of stones, avenues, sites and geographical relationships. It also includes a detailed appendix of all known circles and four-posters with landranger map coordinates, condition and survey details. An excellent guide to those who wish to explore and create their own theories.
