Format: Paperback
I enjoyed this book very much and had difficulty putting it down.
Links were made between houses to live in and monuments, which threw light on the possible meaning and function of monuments. Evidence was drawn from archeological studies in the UK and Northern Europe spanning the period from the megalithic to the late neolithic.I would describe it as a scholarly book with a strong empirical approach. At the same time the implications drawn from the evidence are exciting so that it felt a bit like reading a detective story.
It is well written so that as a non archeologist I was able to follow it without difficutlty. At the same time it is an academic book with a lot to offer the established archeologist.

This book provides an excellent overview of prehistoric monuments and introduces certain key concepts which have changed the way we interpret them. It's not an 'easy' read though - very suitable for students studying archaeology at University.

Richard Bradley has some excellent ideas on the form and use of monuments in both the Early Neolithic and the Late Neolithic/ Early Bronze Age transition. In some cases recent work has superceded the information available and the Middle Neolithic cursus monuments are not considered, possibly as they don't fall into the patterns that are proposed. The great strength of this book is that Richard Bradley goes well beyond a physical description of these monuments by providing a well reasoned discussion on the evolving ideas that shaped changes in the form of the monuments.
