This review is from: The Significance of Monuments: On the Shaping of Human Experience in Neolithic and Bronze Age Europe (Hardcover)
Richard Bradley has some excellent ideas on the form and use of monuments in both the Early Neolithic and the Late Neolithic/ Early Bronze Age transition. In some cases recent work has superceded the information available and the Middle Neolithic cursus monuments are not considered, possibly as they don't fall into the patterns that are proposed. The great strength of this book is that Richard Bradley goes well beyond a physical description of these monuments by providing a well reasoned discussion on the evolving ideas that shaped changes in the form of the monuments.
