Overview

A substantially revised edition of Aubrey Burl's The Stone Circles of the British Isles , now out of print. This classic study of stone circles discusses the stone circle tradition, their construction, meaning and function, and their abandonment. It includes a new interpretation of Stonehenge and Callanish, and includes many well known and lesser known examples. The gazetteer of sites is arranged geographically and includes information on the many different theories about the meaning of the circles, recent radiocarbon dates and evidence from new excavations. A classic study, although you may find that many of the ideas have already been presented in Burl's other books.
