From the Back Cover
Both evocative and mysterious, megalithic tombs have stood for thousands of years, yet they keep meanings hidden. This book explores their origins and what they reveal to us today about our ancestors.
The book focuses on Welsh tombs, a particularly rich source of information. They were built by people with a vibrant culture, who travelled by both land and sea to surrounding communities. Skilled craftspeople, they creatively exploited Wales's abundant stone.
With beautiful photographs and engaging illustrations, The Tomb Builders sheds fresh light on the meaning of these dignified structures and, more importantly, on the lives of the people who built them.
