5.0 out of 5 stars make this your first Avebury book, 15 Mar. 2013
This review is from: Avebury (Wooden Books Gift Book) (Paperback)
This is a tiny little book with a charming presentation (like all Wooden Books) brown ink on thick quality paper and ilustration evrywhere. Dont however let the quaint presentation make you think it lacking in any way. These books are packed with facts and information. In a book this size, you can only expect an introduction, but here you get an introduction to everything about Avebury (apart from how to get there). Even if like me you find yourself interested in the technicalities of stone rings, (and you can manage mathematics and astronomy) you will still value having this as your introductory guide to Avebury. I keep having to buy more of these as I keep giving them away to people who dont know about Avebury. You can open this anywhere and be interested by what is on that page. Very few books contain such a density of easy to read enjoyable information. I always return to these little books no matter what other volumes I have.

Make this your first introduction to Avebury and you might find things missing from the books you buy afterwards.

PS. if you dont know about Avebury, then go and visit Stonehenge, suffer the disappointment of not getting close enough, then visit the site you never heard of starting in the avenue, and take one of these books with you.
