This review is from: Build Your Own Stonehenge (mega mini) (Paperback)
For such little money you would not really expect anything of serious educational value,but this miniature representation of one of the western worlds greatest ancient monuments is remarkably accurate.
Real care has been taken to produce stones of accurate height and dimensions,with the jigsaw base representing the grassy area of Salisbury plain really well.
The real star of this package is the highly informative 31 page booklet written by someone with real knowledge of the different phases of the circles construction,really the booklet is very good indeed and simplifies the different phases of the temples construction for everyone to enjoy.
Once you see the actual model built in front of you and take time to read the booklet,you will realise this is not a child's toy,but an educational model,and having compared ariel photographs of the monument this model is a very accurate representation of the real thing.
For well under £5 this model and booklet represents incredible value,and really it could cost a fair bit more and still be excellent value.
I was so impressed that I bought another to send to a history mad 8 yr old who lives in Canada,I will be very surprised if he is not equally impressed as I was.
