Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Uma Krishnaswami
If you are planning to visit Stonehenge, I'd certainly read this book before leaving. And you'll visit Stonehenge in these pages even if travel isn't on your agenda. The mysteries of the stones are explored in relation to other ancient remains both in the British Isles (Orkney, the Boyne Valley), Brittany, and elsewhere in the world. Archeological findings about the people of Stonehenge are laid out in a chapter on land use, trade, kingship, and more. Stunning photographs, of pottery and sunrises, gold, and the enigmatic stones themselves, illustrate this lovely book. Perhaps the closing photograph of comet Hale-Bopp crossing the night sky above Stonehenge best captures the point in time at which the monument is poised in sight of both past and future.
