What are stone circles? When were they built, and why? How come so many of them egg-shaped, or geometrically flattened?
What do they have to do with the landscape, Sun, Moon and stars?
In this beautifully illustrated book, megalithomaniac Hugh Newman takes us on a fascinating journey around the world, examining these mysterious monuments of the megalithic culture from Wessex to Scotland, France to Poland, North America to Africa and India to Japan.
