Of all the monuments left by the past, Stonehenge is the most evocative, the most memorable, and the most mysterious. Rodney Castleden's vivid presentation of the world of megaliths answers many of the most baffling questions about Stonehenge. There are, he stresses, few absolute certainties, but from the vast body of evidence assembled during the last hundred years, it is now possible to get much closer to the truth than ever before. Who built the monuments and for what purpose? How were the bluestones moved from the sacred mountains of the west to Salisbury Plain? Who were the people responsible for this amazing undertaking, and what did they think and believe? Rodney Castleden presents an illuminating and convincing interpretation of Stonehenge's cultural context and historical meaning.
