Description

This book covers all the great tombs of the first farmers in Britain, both the earthen mounds and the huge stone chambers. The dramatic stone monuments of Scotland, Wales, Cornwall and the Cotswolds and the less awe-inspiring earth and timber megalithic tombs and long barrows of southern and north-eastern England are described and illustrated with plans and photographs. The various regional groups are defined and described in a series of short, well-illustrated sections and the book ends with a list of sites to visit covering monuments of each type in all parts of Britain. About the authorFrances Lynch is a lecturer in archaeology at the University of Wales, Bangor, and has written several books for the general public on the archaeology of North Wales.show more
