From Stonehenge to Callanish, from Newgrange to Er-Lannic, great prehistoric stone circles have drawn thousands of admiring visitors to their sites every year. This practical guidebook deals comprehensively with the stone circles of Britain and Ireland and with the cromlechs and megalithic ‘horseshoes’ of Brittany.

Featuring information, useful maps and more than 70 photographs, this is a resource for those interested in the mysteries of the ancient sanctuaries known as stone circles. This new edition will include a section on ‘Druidical’ circles, romantic creations of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.
