Format: Hardcover
Since the day I saw my first stone avenue, looming out of the Dartmoor mist and looking like a column of soldiers marching through the mists of time, I was hooked. I eventually located several more stone rows and avenues on the moor - but there was little or no information available about them to satisfy my growing curiousity.Then I found Aubrey Burl's book 'From Carnac to Callanish' this book has them all, from Brittany to the Hebrides in fascinating detail. First published in 1993, it is a gem of a book that is as detailed as it is readable. If you have ever looked at a row of megaliths and wondered, buy this book now.

I became interested in ancient stone alignments This guide has been invaluable to me, when exploring the leafy lanes and moorlands of the UK in search of the real inspiration behind the game. It comes highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, no nonsense and entertaining 15 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is the ultimate book about stone rows. It gives an enormous number of facts about them. A no-nonsense scientific hypothesis is given as to what purpose these rows were made and into what categories they can be divided. But it has been written in a very entertaining way, lots of legends are mentioned as well.
