Format: Paperback
Although there are a few books on the prehistory of the Peak District and Yorkshire Dales national parks, there is little on the Lake District. This book covers both the neolithic and bronze age monuments: burial mounds, standing stones, cists, ring ditches and causewayed enclosures. He describes the sites and has photos and plans and drawings. The book also discusses the sites more generally regarding what the structures were actually built for. Tom Clare is a professional archaeologist. The book is in typical Tempus Publisher style with plenty of colour photos and figures. It suits the general reader as well as academics. The book is probably the best on Lake District archaeology since Waterhouse's "Stone Circles of Cumbria", now long out of print.

I have walked in the Lake District for many years and visited the major "tourist" stone circles. I bought this book after a walk between Boot and Burnmoor tarn which led through a collection of small circles.

It is written by an expert with strong local experience and opens up many more sites, no matter what level your interest or knowledge. Well worth acquiring if you are a "Laker", especially if the years are starting to keep you off the tougher circuits and you are looking for a theme for lower level walks
