Every so often, an unexpected gem crosses our desks at CA. The Prehistoric Peak is the latest of these happy occurrences. This book is a step-by-step guide of the author's own journey to each of the 52 featured sites.
The author's casual curiosity developed into a passion for, British prehistory. Neither historian nor archaeologist, Johnstone produced this book for a graduate design course at Central St Martins. The end result is an absolutely gorgeous, easily digestible volume packed with practical tips, packing lists, basic introductions to time periods and monuments, colour photographs, and finally - the monument guides.
There are many people who struggle with map reading, and may be discouraged from visiting sites for this very reason. The maps and monument plans take the mystery and struggle out of this process. Colourful, highly accurate, detailed yet simple, easy to read and understand: truly a resource that puts the visitor in the picture. There is also explanatory text about walking conditions and what to expect, and standard information for each monument -- including nearest town, OS map reference, as grid number, GPS data, altitude, and a difficulty rating.
