'The clearest and most detailed account of Stonehenge for a generation.' Mail on Sunday John North's extraordinary book finally solves the riddle of Stonehenge. How? By carefully reassessing the archaeological evidence and reconstructing the heavens as they would have appeared thousands of years ago. As well as considering Stonehenge, John North draws evidence from prehistoric remains throughout Britain and northern Europe - the stone circles at Avebury, the White Horse at Uffington, the Long Man of Wilmington in Sussex and the long barrows which are dotted over southern England. He shows how all these pieces fit together to establish the function of the stones themselves and what we can know of the religion that caused them to be erected in the first place.
