From the publisher

Stonehenge is the most famous prehistoric monument in Europe and is visited by hundreds of thousands of people every year. 'Impressively researched, full of charming anecdotes and engagingly written,' says the Daily Telegraph's Andy Letcher, 'Hill's Stonehenge deserves to become the standard introduction for professionals and amateurs.'

Stonehenge is woven into the earliest Arthurian legends and has been analysed by everyone from archaeologists, to town planners, to the Druids who have made it their spiritual home. By refusing to adopt one theoretical position, Rosemary Hill provides the most wide-ranging and expansive history of the megalithic structure to date, from its creation in 3000 BC to the threat of the thunderous main roads that flank it today.
