Readable and detailed book on stone circles,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Stone Circles of the British Isles (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.
