Stonehenge

3.3 of 5 stars 3.30  ·  rating details  ·  30 ratings  ·  7 reviews
Once part of a large culture of stone circles, Stonehenge—built around 3000 B.C. and developed over the next 1,500 years—is the most famous.

Intressant historiamässigt med alla fakta men still större delen väldig flummig med alla nummer och riktningar, säkert finns det någon sanning i det men han drar lite väl osannolika slutsatser i boken.

I am so fascinated by Stonehenge, always have been, and this book made me even more so. Very quick read, not much detail, but it has some very interesting factoids. Totally an appetite-whetter, and now I wanna learn all about it.

Rainey
Very thoughtful, but I expected a more historical reference on the origins of Stonehenge. Heath's account was too focused on the astrological significance for my taste.

This is a brief look at Stonehenge. Not a whole lot to this little book, but can be used as an introduction to the subject.
Holly
