The number and sheer diversity of these structures is astonishing, including massive stone rows and circles, as well as barrows, chambered tombs and earthwork enclosures. In this concise but authoritative overview, Chris Scarre guides us around these monuments. This invaluable, authoritative overview of some of our greatest and most-visited monuments is ideal for traveller, tourist and student alike.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
