4.0 out of 5 stars informative, 3 Nov 2009
This review is from: A Guide to the Stone Circles of Britain, Ireland and Brittany (Paperback)
This is a book full of useful information and history. My one objection is that the photos are somewhat drab and, given the fascination and beauty of stone circles, they should not be. Clearly the book would be much more expensive if it had a lot of colour pictures, but I feel something is lacking in presentation with this book.

Having read the book more carefully, I'd like to praise the author's knowledge and fascination with his subject which have increased my appreciation of the book. The 'false' stone circles (18th and 19th century AD) are delightfully described at the end of the book and I was unaware that any such existed (although Will Self apparently built himself a megalithic monument in his garden after spending time exploring the amazing chambered cairns of Rousay, Orkney - Excuse irrelevant comment).

I still regret the lack of enticing photos in the book though.
