Description

When the first edition of "Stonehenge Complete" was published, it won the British Archaeological Book Award. People have puzzled over Stonehenge for centuries: speculating and dreaming about it, drawing and painting it, trying to make sense of it. Here is the story of the one real Stonehenge, as well as the many unreal Stonehenge that archaeologists, tourists, mystics, astronomers, artists, poets and visionaries have made out of it. This new edition has been revised and updated to include the latest theories and discoveries, bringing the Stonehenge story into the 1990s. Christopher Chippindale is editor of the international archaeological journal "Antiquity".
