This book needed to be written, and Burl has done it well. There are some nine hundred stone circles in Britain but little documentation on any of them except (inevitably) Stonehenge. Burl avoids the trap of New Age nonsense, though he cannot completely rid himself of an underlying assumption - common to most archaeologists - that the purpose of something undeniably ancient which we don't understand must have been religious. But that is a very minor criticism of a most useful book which must have taken a huge amount of work, and must be the definitive starting point for any study of this still mysterious subject.

Wonderful if you are really interested in the topic.
Probably not ideal for a casual dip into the subject.
333 pages plus 80 of Bibliography and Index.
