Overview

This magnificent book is a fascinating account of the prehistoric stone circles at Avebury, which not only date from an earlier era but are also larger than the more famous sarsen stone circle of Stonehenge. Written by a leading archaeologist, the book considers every aspect of Avebury's history and construction and discusses the probable purpose of these massive structures, in the process creating a vivid and moving picture of their creators-a primitive people whose lives were brief, savage, and fearful.

He is also the author of Great Stone Circles: Fables, Fictions, Facts, From Carnac to Callanish: The Prehistoric Stone Rows, The Stone Circles of Britain, Ireland and Brittany, and A Guide to the Stone Circles of Britain, Ireland, and Brittany, all published by Yale University Press
