Standing with Stones : A Photographic Journey Through Megalithic Britain and Ireland Hardback
Across the length and breadth of Britain and Ireland lies an unsurpassed richness of prehistoric heritage. "Standing with Stones" is a personal voyage of discovery, taking the reader to over a hundred megalithic sites in a photographic journey through the British Isles.
The book is divided into regions, and each site featured is given its Ordnance Survey grid reference.
Some, like Stonehenge and Newgrange, are well known and often visited, but many, such as Fernworthy and Bleasdale, are remote and barely known.
Rupert Soskins stunning and original photographs act as windows into the past, which, together with his engaging and accessible text, encourage the reader to think afresh about the meaning and purpose of these monuments and at the same time open the eyes of travellers and enthusiasts to the great wealth and variety of henges, circles, dolmens, barrows and standing stones across the British Isles.
