A must have book for anyone interesting in the Megalithic Tombs of Ireland,
This review is from: Temples of Stone: Exploring the Megalithic Tombs of Ireland (Hardcover)Excellent reference book on the significant Megalithic sites of Ireland. Carleton Jones has distilled the knowledge of all the relevant previous publications and combined it with his own research and photographs to create a must have book for anyone interesting in the Megalithic Tombs of Ireland. It is three books in one, anyone of which could have been issued in its own right. 1) Background to the Megalith Builders 2) In Depth studies of the many Megalithic Sites 3) A field guide including maps. The bibliography lists about 140 books, a testament to the depth of research. Dr. Carleton Jones lectures in archaeology at the National University of Ireland in Galway, so knows his stuff, however the book is easy to read and attractively laid out with many excellent photographs.
