This review is from: Stonehenge (Paperback)
This is a lovely book; well written and easy to read. All books written about Stonehenge of course are more or less histories of the theories and ideas that successive writers have presented to us. We can never know what the monument stands for, but we can speculate, with each age seeing it in the light of their own prejudices and mindsets.
This book is no exception, but it's presented to you in a form that is gripping, and gives you much food for thought. I read it in two days, and wished it could have gone on, but it left me feeling frustrated that we know so little about the monument itself and the people who built it. Rosemary Hill could not tell you that, but she could certainly give you a greater appreciation of something that has become almost like an archetype in our minds. Her book is a worthy addition to the volumes of literature that have been written about Stonehenge and the ages in which it was built.
