This review is from: Prehistoric Rock Art in Britain: Sermons in Stone (Paperback)
Stan Beckensall has long been the authority on the prehistoric rock art of northern Britain and this book reflects his depth of knowledge and understanding.
This volume is really well-illustrated and provides an excellent overview - he has written many other books on this subject, usually regional guides, but this is a recent addition and covers much new material.
You will find excellent black and white photographs of rare and hard to find sites (good quality black and white photographs provide better detail than colour plates, though there are also some examples of the latter too).
Overall, probably the best book on prehistoric British rock art. Great for the casual reader because the subject is so interesting and the book is profusely illustrated, but equally useful for the student or academic.
Excellent, a 'hard-to-put-down' read.
