Stonehenge: The Secret of the Solstice

Stonehenge: The Secret of the Solstice Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Illustrated with stunning photographs, this book shows how the known facts from such diverse fields as archaeology, anthropology, and primitive religion contribute to a better understanding of stone age monuments. Five years of exhaustive research have unveiled a simple, beautiful, and natural explanation for the creation of Stonehenge. It was not built as an astronomical observatory, nor is it the result of complicated mathematics. Instead, it is the result of humans working in harmony with natural phenomena to create a symbol of worship that lay at the heart of religion practiced in Britain and Ireland during the neolithic and bronze ages. Stonehenge is an in-depth look at the monument that is perennially fascinating to millions of people.
